Promise for a sustainable stay

Montréal has so much to offer that you’re sure to have an unforgettable trip. Your commitment to the promise for a sustainable stayis a sign of gratitude towards the city and its inhabitants.

While in Montréal, I do not consider myself just a visitor, I see myself as a honorary local. Although I may just be passing through, I promise to enjoy everything the city has to offer in a respectful and responsible manner.

  • Waste and impact managementMontréal is overflowing with green spaces and they inspire me to be as green as I can. Reusable bottles, cups and bags are my constant companions.
  • Zero-emission transportationOn foot, by bike, on the metro... there are many green ways to explore the city. Low-impact sustainable mobility is my preferred way to get around. 
  • Buy localI make the most of my visit by enjoying Montréal’s je ne sais quoi whenever I can. That means buying local when possible, because supporting local businesses here is as simple as saying “Bonjour-Hi.”
  • Welcoming diversityMontréal’s diversity is what makes this city so culturally rich. It’s a place where I’m free to be myself, just like everyone else. 
  • Respect and civilityAs a citizen of the world, I respect your home. Even if I’m just here for a little while, I will do my best to act like a good neighbour.
