The challenges facing Mount Royal | 
Newsroom

More than 10 years have passed since the first Mount Royal Summit in 2002, and at the request of the citizens of Montreal, many actions and interventions have been undertaken by the Gouvernement du Québec and the Ville de Montréal to protect this emblematic territory. Important gains have been made in protection and enhancement initiatives for the mountain, and the time has come to take an inventory of these actions taken by our public authorities, as well as by the institutional property owners on Mount Royal. The challenges to be addressed during the Summit include the protection of the territory, of its views, landscapes and natural environment, of the future of its great institutional domains and its governance structure.

The objective of the Mount Royal Summit in 2013 is, on the one hand, to identify future prospects for the mountain and on the other, to allow all concerned stakeholders to take part in this collaborative effort.

More than 150 individuals are expected to participate in this day of discussion and exchange organized by the Ville de Montréal’s Bureau du Mont-Royal and Les amis de la montagne, following a consensus established by the Table de concertation du Mont-Royal.

This activity has been made possible through the financial support of the Fondation Écho, Les amis de la montagne, and the Ville de Montréal and the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications as part of the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal.
