Montreal 2050: Equality, inclusion and accessibility is the goal 

September 15, 2022

The City of Montreal wants to adopt a 2050 Urban Planning and Mobility Plan. This plan will provide guidelines for land use planning. It will influence the protection of the environment, the types of housing to be developed, the modes of transportation to be encouraged and the type of neighbourhoods we will have. Why 2050? Montreal is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. The Urban Planning and Mobility Plan will help support changes in the way we build the city, move around, dwell and consume. The City outlines its vision and necessary transitions for 2050 in its  "city project". The population is invited to share its needs and aspirations in a public consultation organized by the Office de consultation publique de Montréal.

The Table des groupes de femmes de Montréal (TGFM) and the Conseil des Montréalaises (CM) are joining forces to ensure that feminist perspectives are considered in this public consultation. We are jointly publishing a memoir entitled "Montréal 2050: Equality, Inclusion and Accessibility is the Goal". This brief argues that Montreal feminists want a city that offers better living conditions, access to affordable housing and transportation, safe streets and universally accessible facilities and services by 2050. But above all, they want to be taken into account in their diversity.
