Tourists bumbling about Montreal will get a serious boon in the coming years, as the creation of free Wi-Fi hot spots on St. Catherine West and in Old Montreal has been proposed for 2017, reports TVA.

Dubbed the iMap project, the proposed idea would revamp tourists signs in Old Montreal (those red signs telling you where things are) and on St. Cats by making them easier to understand for tourists, while also functioning as a Wi-Fi hotspots. So even if a tourist gets lost, at least they can pop up Google maps.

iMap will first exist as a pilot project, launching next year, with full installation of the Wi-Fi-signs to begin in late-2016. Before any of that, a design will need to be chosen, with a competition to be held next year.
