From a little café to a fancy restaurant, Outremont has a place for everyone and every taste. Since I'm a foodaholic, I made a list of the best restaurants for you to try if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
This restaurant is like no other. They don't have a specific menu because it changes every week. Every time you got there they make you a surprise meal with the ingredients written on the chalkboard. Also, they work with local companies that employ responsible and sustainable practices.
Montreal's Outremont station has closed for seven months as part of a major renovation. From January 10 to August 19, 2022 passengers will not be able to enter or exit the metro at the blue line station.
The STM says the planned closure will make way for crews to fast-track a renovation project that began in January 2021. The project includes the installation of elevators, a new waterproof membrane, better lighting and motorized butterfly doors, according to the transit company.
In a press release, it explained that the closure of the station was necessary because it only has one entrance, so passengers wouldn't have another way to safely enter the metro during construction.
People who usually use Outremont station will be able to get on a special shuttle to get to Acadie station or the regular 51 or 119 buses to get to Édouard-Montpetit station.
Though Outremont station will reopen in August 2022, work will continue until December 2023.
Work on the blue line station is just one part of a major renovation push by the STM. 24 stations are undergoing or have recently undergone some sort of construction project, according to the company's website.
Many of those projects involve the installation of elevators.
According to the STM, "Outremont is the ninth station to close for major work, after Côte-Vertu (2021), Beaudry (2018), Beaubien (2015), Jolicoeur (2013), Villa-Maria (2011), Côte-Sainte-Catherine (2010), Charlevoix (2009) and Georges-Vanier (2008)."
The City of Montreal has announced that it will be moving forward with investments on seven projects that were selected by Montrealers.
The investment will come from the city's first-ever participatory budget, which allowed citizens to choose their favourite projects.
Over a two-year period, $10 million will go to seven projects that got the most overall votes from the population. Six projects will be spread out over 14 boroughs and one project will encompass the entire territory of Montreal.
"What emerges from the selected projects is the importance that people place on improving their living environment, protecting nature in the city and reclaiming public spaces for the benefit of the entire population," Mayor Valérie Plante said in a statement.
The following projects were selected for investment:
A budget of $2.7 million will be used for building more than 125 water fountains that will allow for refilling reusable water bottles in Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève, Mercier–Hochelaga–Maisonneuve, Outremont, Saint-Léonard and Ville-Marie.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
