With the ultimate goal of making Laval greener, the Executive Committee renewed its partnership agreement with Hydro-Québec for five years.
This agreement will make it possible to
continue to improve the supply of electric vehicle charging in Laval for the next few years.
Several electric car charging site developments are in the preparation phase throughout the territory, and this partnership agreement will facilitate the processes of acquiring and implementing 240 V charging stations on the sites owned by the City.

Imagined by the organization [co]motion, agitator of culture, the
event LVL UP, digital lab and music is back for a2nd edition after a forced withdrawal last year due to the health crisis.

by combining digital arts and urban culture.

Financial assistance of $40,000 for the Diapason Festival
The members of the Executive Committee have granted $40,000 in financial assistance to the Centrale des artistes for the 13th edition of the Diapason Festival, which will be held
from August 5 to 8.
This sum will make it possible to maintain the adapted formula of the festival and, thus, to revitalize the
Laval cultural landscape.
Since 2015, the festival has been developing in the heart of
Vieux-Sainte-Rose and offers various shows in atypical places, while having a major pole on the banks of the Bathers.
With the health restrictions related to COVID-19, the festival’s programming had to be reviewed as well as its capacity on the various sites it operates.
This year, the program will therefore be divided into four locations that will be specified at its unveiling.
