Accessing the River: Dream or Reality?

City Talks

Living on a fluvial archipelago composed of hundreds of islands, residents of Montreal and the surrounding metropolitan region increasingly see access to the river and other bodies of water as having a positive impact on their quality of life and the city’s identity. How can we reconcile this urban and environmental trend with the challenges involved in accessing the river?


  • Nathalie Boucher, Director and researcher, REsPIRE
  • Mikael St-Pierre, Urban planner and project and development manager, Montréal Urban Ecology Centre
  • Pierre M. Valiquette, Landscape architect, environmental planner

City Talks is a series of lectures bringing  together city thinkers  and builders to share their views on current practical urban issues affecting Montrealers.

Free activity. The lectures are followed by an informal and friendly chat over a glass of wine.
Location:  J. Armand Bombardier Theatre at the McCord Museum
