The Montréal Charter on the International Scene

Since its adoption, the Montréal Charter of Rights and Responsibilities has aroused much interest on the international scene.

In 2006, at the UN-HABITAT World Urban Forum III held in Vancouver, UNESCO and UN-HABITAT highlighted the merits of the Montréal Charter within the framework of their work on urban policies, inclusion, Right to the City and local democracy.

In Europe and in South America, the innovative Montréal Charter was mentioned at international conferences on Human Rights in the City, Participative Democracy, and Democratic Innovations in Cities.

The Montréal Charter was also one of the reference documents for the Global Charter-Agenda for Human Rights in the City project.

Over the years, interest in the Montréal Charter of Rights and Responsibilities gave rise to repeated requests on the international scene for translated versions. As a result, the Montréal Charter is now available in eight languages other than French and English. Most of the translations were graciously provided to Montréal by McGill University, in cooperation with universities from several other countries, by the Université de Montréal, and by the Greek Consulate in Montréal. Those translations attest to the high level of interest for the Montréal Charter.

Please note that in case of discrepancy, the French version of the Charter is the only official version.
