Your city and your health are more connected than you think.

Montreal is undergoing major changes: over 184 km of new bike paths, plans for more green spaces, pedestrianized areas, and major transit projects like the REM or the BRT Pie IX. How do you see these changes? How will they impact you and future generations? Do you believe they make the city a happier and healthier place to be?

We’re looking for some answers and you can help us. Your experiences in the city and the way they are changing can provide valuable information to decision makers. Join our study and be part of the conversation.
