It has always been essential for the MUHC to communicate with members of the community and to address residents’ and merchants’ expectations and concerns over the years.
Good Neighbourly Relations Committee
The MUHC, in conjunction with its partners, the City of Montreal, CDN-NDG borough, and the Groupe immobiler santé McGill (MUHC’s private partner for the construction of the Glen Site) formed a Good Neighbourly Relations Committee with local residents and merchants. The committee holds working sessions every six to eight weeks, which are open to the public. Our two main goals are:
- To update residents and merchants on the construction schedule for the coming weeks
- Address construction-related issues and questions and find solutions together
The meetings are held at Glen Hall, 5100 de Maisonneuve West, main floor. Next session will be on :
- Tuesday, April 30th, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Reaching out to the community
In 2000, the MUHC opened an active dialogue with its new neighbours at the Glen site. In November 2004, we confirmed our commitment to this community by signing a partnership agreement with the Inter-Neighbourhood Coalition (CIQ) that promotes potential employability, environmental protection, economic development and accessibility.
As part of municipal regulation changes for the development of the Glen Site, the MUHC presented its project during public consultations led by the Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) in 2005. This exercise allowed the MUHC to correct and refine several aspects of the project.
The MUHC also supports a research project headed by McGill University and subsidized by the Community-University Research Alliance (CURA), who is looking at how the project can contribute to community development.
