Citizen’s Assembly

Open forum and pre-election meeting between citizens and federal and municipal candidates

On September 28th, join your neighbors to create a vision for the Plateau!

Do you have opinions and ideas about how the Plateau is changing and what it means for the future of those who live and work here? You are not alone! Join your neighbors for an non-partisan open forum to identify issues facing Plateau residents and workers, explore solutions, and communicate with municipal and federal candidates and elected officials.

À nous le Plateau! is a citizens’ assembly where the participants determine the agenda. The first episode of this exercise in participatory democracy will take place just prior to the municipal and federal elections in October. In addition to addressing issues pertaining to municipal and federal policy, participants in this event can help plan future assemblies where neighbors can tackle more issues.

Join us for this event of a new kind!
