MONTREAL PARTICIPATORY BUDGET
CONSULTATIONS IN NDG
The NDG Community Council mobilizes residents and community groups to participate and share their ideas and projects by organizing public consultations and meetings. We inform the NDG community about the importance of getting involved in enhancing life in NDG.
How do participatory budgets work
- Residents submit their project ideas.
- The city or the borough reviews the ideas received, develops them into achievable projects, or improves them. Then they assess the feasibility of the projects and draw up a final list to submit to a vote.
- The projects that receive the most votes are completed, within the allocated budget.
Dear All Residents in NDG,

Participatory Budget CDN-NDG 2023
NDG Community Council invites you, to think and propose solutions to meet the needs in the following themes:
- YOUTH: Meet the needs of Montrealers who are 30 years old or younger.
- SAFETY: Offer safe living environments (safe mobility, prevention and a sense of safety on public property, protection against severe inclement weather).
- EQUITY: Ensure that Montrealers from all walks of life have equitable access to municipal infrastructures across city territory.
In January 2021 the Council hosted a virtual workshop with the community to exchange project ideas together, to present an initiative, and to submit collectively. Residents or organisations who wished to submit individually were also welcomed to participate in order to share ideas with their community.
The Council presented the concept of Mini Urban Forests, a concept inspired by the Miyawaki model for urban forests in urban settings.
