However, the City would like to limit physical presence and avoid having too many persons at once in its buildings. Consequently, everyone who would like to come in person must make an appointment in advance with the desired service. Only one person may come to the appointment. You can reach the various departments by calling 450 698-3000. Calls will be transferred to the personnel concerned who are either working on site or teleworking.

The offices affected by the reopening are city hall, the municipal court and the Public Works building. You can also schedule an appointment at the Centre culturel Georges-P.-Vanier by calling 450 698-3100 from Monday to Friday, between noon and 6 pm.

You will find more information on the procedure to follow at, in the “Bibliothèque Raymond-Laberge” section.
