Disability in Everyday Life

Facilities exist within the City and in public spaces to facilitate the lives of disabled persons.

  • Designated handicapped parking spaces (C.I.C, C.I.G): there are currently 81 spaces, including 44 spaces outside of the paid parking zone and 37 spaces in paid parking zones. View the list of spaces and the map

Of course, parking remains free of charge for individuals with reduced mobility, but is now limited to two hours (instead of three: As per municipal bylaws no. 2009/10 and no. 2009/11 in effect since October 1st, 2009) in order to provide for improved rotation of spaces and thus serve the largest number of persons authorised to benefit from this option.
