A vision based on the sustainable development plan of the city of Bromont

The city of Bromont was the first city in Quebec to use The Natural Step approach to carry out its sustainable development plan. Also known as “Think your city”, the consultation process with citizens and businesses made it possible to establish “Vision 2030”. First published in 2012, the sustainable development plan has since been updated to reflect today’s municipal commitments.

Nature at the forefront

For many years, the City of Bromont has worked to maintain a balance in the development of its territory in order to offer access to its exceptional natural environment, while protecting areas of high ecological value.

Bromont Sciencific Park Nature Reserve

In 2014, the City of Bromont entered into an agreement with the Quebec Ministry of the Environment to protect 204 hectares of land in the heart of the Scientific Park, and this area has since been recognized as a protected nature reserve in perpetuity. In 2015, the Town expanded the Bromont Scientific Park nature reserve which now totals 225.81 hectares.
