Ville de Gatineau
Gatineau participates in the MSPQ information meetings to help invited affected residents
Gatineau, October 2, 2017. – Ville de Gatineau officials will be on hand to meet with affected residents invited by Quebec's ministère de la Sécurité publique (MSPQ) from October 2 to 5. Residents will have the opportunity to obtain answers from municipal officials on the work required as a result of the flooding. It is important to remember that Gatineau issues permits for construction work. The MSPQ handles financial assistance for such work.
Faits en bref
The Service de l'urbanisme et du développement durable will take residents through the steps required to obtain the different permits.
Invited residents will also be able to make an appointment to meet with a Gatineau representative.
This initiative will help with the processing of the 650 open files by affected Gatineau residents. A total of 200 applications have already been issued since the assistance measures were set in place. Another 50 applications are being processed.
The meetings organized by the MSPQ will take place at the centre communautaire Jean-René-Monette, 89 rue Jean-René-Monette.
There is an information search tool on the municipal Web site.
To access that tool, go to gatineau.ca/crue under Information requests and building permit applications.
Permit application and other forms are also available on that site.
Steps already taken to accelerate the process: - a dedicated team in the Service de l'urbanisme et du développement durable has been assigned to process applications; - building permits and certificates of authorization are free for affected residents until September 1, 2018; and - Comité consultatif d'urbanisme and Municipal Council meetings will be scheduled as required.
“Through its initiative to coordinate one-on-one meetings, Quebec's ministère de la Sécurité publique will answer many of the questions of local affected residents. At those meetings, affected residents will get a better sense of their situation, and the options available to them. Given the urgency of the situation, and in an effort to optimize the assistance, a team from the Service de l'urbanisme et du développement durable will be on hand at all of the one-on-one meetings in order to answer questions about the next steps and, in each case, speed up the issuance of permits needed to do the work on their homes. This coordinated exercise will give Gatineau residents the chance to more quickly return their lives to normal,” noted Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin.
