Come discuss with your neighbours what you need in your neighbourhood.

Now for our third year, À nous le Plateau’s Citizens Assembly invites you to discuss, with your neighbhours, needs in your neighbourhood.

This assembly will occur in the context of November’s impending muncipal elections. Accordingly, we will be joining together our hopes and demands to the city.

To do this, we’re proposing two dates to meet:

SATURDAY OCTOBER 2nd (10am-5pm): CITIZENS ASSEMBLY (in-person & online)

Done in the open forum format, cherished by À nous le Plateau!. We’ll be discussing the demands we want to bring to our elected officials. Anne Goldenberg will be moderating discussion for her third consecutive year. This meeting will help us to define priorities in the neighbhourhood and to define proposals to candidates.


A session with elected officials. We will be presenting our demands and proposals to municipal candidates.

Here are our two Facebook events:

Thanks for marking down these dates in your agenda!

Our in-person, outdoor discussion will be strictly inclusive and will include universal access, mobility aid, a meal, places for discussion, breaks and a daycare. Our digital event will allow for simultaneous captioning in English and we are currently seeking sign language interpreters.

ANLP Happy Hour Event

2020-09-16 Guinguette d'Aurore

at the closing party of the Guinguette d’Aurore

Let’s celebrate together the success of the second edition of À nous le Plateau!

Join us at this event closing of Guinguette d’Aurore for the summer. The Guinguette d’Aurore is located at the back of St-Stanislas-de-Kostka Church, corner Garnier and Gilford.

For the occasion, the Maison d’Aurore organizes a concert with the Akoz Duo!

Akoz duo is a string duo created in Montreal by Julie and Olivier Babaz. In addition to composing original pieces for double bass and viola, the duo’s musicians are careful to highlight unusual playing modes such as the integration of kalimbas on the double bass, the exchange of roles in the arrangement or the development of improvisation tracks. Their artistic and personal backgrounds lead them to integrate multiple influences and styles into their music.

Come and discuss with us!

Bring your drinks, chairs or blankets.
