Quote

“Equipping Gatineau with a strategic vision, in consultation with residents and other municipal parties, is vital to the city's sensible development. In addition to determining the future priorities and guiding the steps towards achieving them, the strategic plan is a tool that ensures sound governance in a climate of transparency. The tour gives everyone the opportunity to comment on their experience and to share their ideas and opinions. I strongly encourage residents to get involved and to help build tomorrow's Gatineau,” indicated Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin.
