The Quebec government and the City of Montreal have signed the new Montreal Cultural Development Agreement. Over the course of three years, more than $158 million will be invested in artistic and cultural projects in Montreal.
The news was made by the Quebec government and the City of Montreal in a joint statement. Montreal will be free to choose the initiatives that are most essential to it under the conditions of the agreement.
The agreement covers two topics: the development of Montreal’s cultural landscape and the implementation of projects that promote public participation and access to culture.
Previous agreements have provided cash to libraries to establish public meeting spaces and acquire new books, as well as enhancements to Mont-Royal and the Bois-de-Saraguay, to name a few.
Among the projects supported by the funding agreement were indigenous cultural projects and creative activities for elderly. According to the agreement, the projects chosen will strive to display Montreal’s legacy, improve the city’s quality of life, and incorporate public art into the urban landscape. The production and transmission of heritage-related knowledge in Quebec will also be aided.
According to Cultural and Communications Minister Nathalie Roy, the cooperation aims to improve quality of life in all neighbourhoods and provide equal access to culture.
The pact, according to Mayor Valérie Plante, is a unique opportunity to develop and conserve Montreal’s legacy and unique landscapes.
The minister in charge of Montreal, Chantal Rouleau, adds that this will allow Montreal to shine throughout Quebec and beyond its borders. Similar agreements are reached by the Quebec government with other Quebec cities.
