Collaboration methods

Hydro-Québec has implemented a collaborative approach tailored to each city and borough concerned in order to establish a dialogue about the project and find ways to optimize it for everyone involved.

Depending on the city or borough, the approach may take the form of public information sessions, working groups, working committees or other mechanisms to be determined with each area.

Partnering with communities

To help this project fit in with the urban development vision of its municipal partners, Hydro-Québec wishes to support possible greening and sustainable mobility initiatives along the line right-of-way. The objective is to create a corridor of biodiversity, connectivity and sustainable mobility. The feasibility of any these initiatives must take the specific needs and constraints of the surrounding environment into account.

Greening and sustainable mobility initiatives

Saint-Laurent biodiversity corridor

The borough of Saint-Laurent’s biodiversity corridor project (called Vert-de-gris), now in the planning stage, is a good illustration of the type of work that can be done on power line rights-of-way.

Green link in LaSalle

The green link project in the LaSalle borough is another type of initiative that is compatible with the operation of a transmission line.

Multi-use landcaping in the Charland–Fleury transmission line right-of-way

Hydro-Québec worked in collaboration with the organization Ville en vert to create multi-use landscaping in the Charland–Fleury transmission line right-of-way, in the borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville. This type of space provides neighboring citizens with a green space while promoting mobility between Saint-Denis and Saint-Hubert streets. It inclues paths, a community garden as well as 115 trees, 600 shrubs and 700 perennials, including climbing plants that are compatible with the safe operation of the high-voltage transmission system. The landscaping allows for long-term harmonious coexistence of vegetation and the power system, helping the line integrate into its environment.
