Monday, 18 February, 2019

Châteauguay, February 18, 2019 – In 2018, the Ville de Châteauguay issued 68.2% more permits and certificates than in 2017, for a total value of $81.3M, or the largest total investment in the past four years. The investment is broken down into 23.5% for the residential sector, 19.2% for the industrial sector and 9.4% for the commercial sector.

A total of 1,446 requests for permits were processed during the year. Of that number, 1,330 permits and certificates of all types were granted, compared to 1,105 in 2017, up 20.3%. It was the most permits issued in the past 10 years.

The requests made to the Division inspection et permis (complaints, internal requests, requests for information) amounted to 1,007 in 2018 compared with 781 in 2017, up 28.9%. We saw a significant improvement in the processing time for these requests in 2018. The average was 51 days, whereas in 2017 it was 110.9 days.

The major investments made in Châteauguay in the past year include the building of a new school for children with special needs on Sutterlin Blvd. ($18.8M), the expansion of the Gérin-Lajoie primary school ($12.8M) and the establishment of the new YourBarFactory plant ($8M). Land sales amounted to $1.5M, and there were five times more investments in the industrial park in 2018 ($14M) than in 2017. Seven companies also expanded the size of their plants (CMP, Promett, Ekyrail, Technoform, Clermont, MacLean and STCH).

“2018 was a very good year for Châteauguay, and it is only the beginning. The City’s economic vitality remains at the heart of our priorities and the intensification of our efforts to engage the business community, stimulate investments and encourage local business is producing results,” emphasized Châteauguay Mayor Pierre-Paul Routhier.
