Throughout 2023, Pointe-Claire residents will be invited totake part in several workshops to contribute to the revision of the Planning Program. See the whole process.
The City of Pointe-Claire invites citizens to take part in the second collaborative workshop, which will take place as part of its Planning Program review process. The event will be held by reservation on Wednesday, May 17 at 7 p.m. at Baie-de-Valois Nautical Centre located at 90 Chemin de Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road. This building is easily accessible to all.
This second conversation will focus on the theme of mixed uses. This mix can be vertical, horizontal or a combination of the two types. This refers to the presence of different activities in the same place: residential, commercial, services, industrial, etc. This diversity is observed on the street scale (horizontal mix) or within the same building (vertical mix). This is an opportunity to discuss your vision of the future of the City of Pointe-Claire.
From now until our meeting this May 17, we invite you to study the fact sheet on the vertical and horizontal mix. This document will be at the basis of the workshop’s discussions.
Note: there are a limited number of spaces. To participate, it is important to reserve your spot by completing the form no later than Thursday, May 11 at 4 p.m.
This workshop is reserved for citizens of Pointe-Claire. Upon your arrival, on the day of your activity, you will be asked for proof of residency. We ask the participants to arrive at 6:45 p.m. so they may be properly seated for the start of the workshop at 7 p.m.

The maps showcase the transformation of the built environment in recent years. Each dot represents an address for which at least one building permit was issued between 2016 and 2022.
The first map shows new residential constructions.
The blue dots represent building permits issued for the construction of a new single-family and 2–4 unit residential buildings.
The red dots represent building permits issued for the construction of a new multi-family residential building of 5 or more units.
The second map represents residential expansions.
The dark blue dots represent the value of expansion work for single-family and 2–4 unit residential buildings, with the smaller dots representing work valued at less than $50,000, and the larger dots representing major work valued at $200,000 or more.
The orange dots represent expansion permits issued for multi-family residential buildings of 5 or more units.
The third map shows residential renovations.
The light blue dots represent the value of renovation work for single-family and 2–4 unit residential buildings, with the smaller dots representing work valued at less than $25,000, and the larger dots representing major work valued at $100,000 or more.
The dark red dots represent renovation permits (exterior or interior) issued for multi-family residential buildings of 5 or more units.
A few definitions:
An expansion is an operation to increase the volume or floor area of an existing building by adding an enclosed space attached to the main building, such as a garage or portico.
A renovation is an operation aimed at renovating an existing construction without, however, increasing the volume or the floor area.
An exterior renovation involves changes to the building envelope, such as replacing the exterior cladding, renovating a porch, renovating a terrace or installing French drains.
An interior renovation involves a change to the interior, such as the addition or removal of walls, designing a basement or converting a garage into living space.
In the following four maps, you can see the development of the built environment through the different phases of residential construction that have taken place on the territory of Pointe-Claire.
Before 1900 and up to 1939, we can see the construction of the oldest residences in the city in the southern part, including the Pointe-Claire Village and along Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road, in the Valois neighbourhood and on Broadview and Coolbreeze avenues.
Between 1940 and 1969 is when the majority of residences in Pointe-Claire were built. War bungalows and split-level houses (also known as the “Magil Split”, named after their architect, Louis B. Magil) were built predominantly during this period. The first multi-family buildings, including apartments located in the areas of Pardo, Somervale Gardens, Southwest One, Tudor Court, Ashgrove, and along Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road near Des Sources Boulevard, were also constructed.
1970 to 1999 is a period of consolidation during which we see the construction of mostly semi-detached houses, townhouses and single-family detached houses on smaller lots, as well as a number of multi-family buildings, including the first retirement homes.
Beginning in 2000, the last vacant lots were built in the Hermitage and Oneida areas. There was also the construction of retirement homes and multi-family buildings (condominiums and rentals) on formerly underused or vacant land in the following areas: Brunswick Avenue, Place Frontenac, Place de la Triade, Hymus Boulevard (east and west of Saint-Jean Boulevard) and Quartier Greenwich, Vermont Avenue, Donegani Avenue and Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road near Des Sources Boulevard. It is also during this period that we see the subdivision of land in certain sectors, including the Veterans' Area.
On February 14, the City of Pointe-Claire invited citizens to take part in a first collaborative workshop as part of the revision of its Planning Program.
The purpose of this first collaborative workshop is to demystify the transformation process of the built environment. However, it will not address the transformation of specific sectors.
To get ready for the evening's activities, we invite you to read the Info sheet about the evolution of Pointe-Claire’s built environment in the Documents section (available in the column on the right side of the page). The purpose of this info sheet is to ensure that citizens are well equipped to participate in the collaborative workshop on March 15.
The event is intended exclusively for citizens of Pointe-Claire and a proof of residency will be required at the entrance. The citizen collaborative workshop on the transformation process of the built environment is now full. If you still wish to participate, we invite you to register on the waiting list on the Pointe-Claire, it’s who we are!
