The Plan’s Implementation Partners
The success of the June 2002 Montréal Summit resulted from the sustained cooperation of many of the City’s partners. In keeping with the commitments made on that occasion, the City will take the lead in implementing the Master Plan, in close cooperation with various public, private and community partners, as well as with the participation of all residents.
Public and parapublic partners
The governments and their agencies are major stakeholders in urban development. They are responsible for major infrastructure projects such as metro line extensions, hospitals, cultural facilities, the port, the airport and others.
The City intends to pursue its long-standing cooperation with the Government of Québec in terms of implementing capital projects and programs. It will also continue to cooperate with the Government of Canada on capital projects that fall under the latter’s exclusive jurisdiction.
Various public partnerships could be forged in order to carry out the projects identified in the Master Plan. For example, the development of the Quartier international de Montréal and the reopening of the Lachine Canal bear witness to a successful collaboration.
The City will also cooperate with other public partners, such as the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT), in carrying out public transportation projects. This also applies to the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM) for the development and implementation of the Schéma métropolitain d’aménagement et de développement (Metropolitan Land Use Planning and Development Plan) and the Plan métropolitain de gestion des matières résiduelles (Metropolitan Waste Management Plan).
Education and health care institutions, especially the universities and hospitals, also rank among the City’s partners. The City has already embarked upon collaborative planning efforts with some of these institutions for their development. An agreement was also reached with the universities to give the City the benefit of their expertise and their capacity for innovation in the fields of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture.
