The pilot project Quartier 21 – Mon îlot vert en Ville in the Peter-McGill district was a 5 year project meant to improve the built environment of a city block in the heart of downtown Montreal. Quartier 21 is an experimental site that demonstrates sustainable development, provides outreach to communities, raises awareness and encourages participation with regard to environmental, social and economic matters. The project was to focus on several initiatives geared toward urban heat island effect and mitigation initiatives.

Over the years Quartier 21 has undertaken several initiatives  that aimed to provide outreach to the communities, raise awareness and garner participation with regard to environmental, social and economic matters as well as climate change issues. Many successes have been made possible through the collaboration, support and participation with our partners.
