- Workshop 1: Post-mortem

After winning the mayoral office and securing a majority at the city council, it’s now time for Projet Montréal to do a post-mortem of the last campaign. This workshop will take notice of the 2017 election assessment and validate recommendations to bring improvements to our organization for the 2021 election.

- Workshop 2: Welcoming diversity

Montréal is composed of a wide ethno-cultural diversity – and we aim to bring the various instances of our party to reflect this diversity. This workshop will address the gender and ethno-cultural representation issues to shape a plan of action.

 - Workshop 3: Internal party life

Historically, Projet Montréal has always given its activists a central place and role among the organization. This workshop will discuss the role of members within Projet Montréal, internal communications and relations between the party’s instances and our elected officials.

- Workshop 4: External party life

There are many ways to keep in touch with citizens between electoral campaigns. This workshop aims to explore the best ways to stay connected with the needs of Montrealers, while advancing our projects.



- Training course 1: Urban planning and development: a shared jurisdiction between different levels of governance

In Montréal, jurisdiction over urban planning and development is shared between the metropolitan community, agglomeration, the city and its boroughs. This training aims to give a brief account of what distinguishes each level, in terms of goals and tools, as well as the boundaries, strict or ambiguous, that define each of those level of governance.

- Training course 2: Civic engagement and participatory urban planning: privileges and opportunities to improve the quality of life of communities

A conversation on two key questions regarding civic engagement:
  • what issues are associated with participatory urban planning, and what are the roles and responsibilities of citizens, public administrations, institutions and professionals that collaborate to improve the quality of life of communities?
  • how should we proceed to increase the flexibility and level of openness brought about by participatory urban planning in regard to community planning and development?

 - Training course 3: An inclusive party? It starts with me!

This training will sensitize Projet Montréal members to the various notions and practices aiming at making our organization more inclusive. Come discuss about anti-oppression, privileges and biases!
