In line with the 2020-2030 Climate Plan and the implementation of Montréal’s Resilient City Strategy, the City of Montreal has decided to support the creation of resilience centres within its territory. This initiative, carried out through the Tandem programme, aims to equip communities to deal with issues of social justice, urban security, and climate change that can have a lasting impact on them.
In this context, the ICPC was mandated to provide methodological support to the project leaders and the team in charge of piloting the implementation of resilience poles in 5 sectors of the municipality: Ahuntsic-Cartierville/St-Laurent, Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Saint-Léonard, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension and Rivière-Des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles.
With this in mind, on April 29, the ICPC met with the resilience agents, the pilot team, for a visioning activity in the context of the development of community resilience poles.
The purpose of this activity was to better understand the implementation of resilience clusters and the resilience agents over time, to put them in a situation where they were faced with different prospective scenarios, and to define the first milestones for the intervention of the clusters in the short, medium and long term.
We would like to thank all the resilience officers for their participation.
