In January 2017, the City of Montréal put forward Mount Royal as a candidate site for inclusion on Canada's Tentative List for World Heritage Sites, which is to be updated in December. This is the first step towards having the place we affectionately call “the Mountain” designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Much more than a hill, Mount Royal is our city’s iconic landmark. Over time, the mountain has shaped the development of the city that now surrounds it. Steeped in natural and cultural heritage, Mount Royal is a defining element of the quality of life for which Montreal is widely recognized.
For those who head up to the mountain, just steps away from the city, for a breath of fresh air and a connection with nature – walkers, runners, cyclists, cross-country skiers, skaters and snowshoers.
For those who treat themselves to a picnic or day of rest in Mount Royal Park with family and friends, or a quiet walk through the mountain’s magnificent cemeteries.
For the tam-tam players, tourists and schoolchildren.
For those who come to the mountain to work or to study, who live on its slopes, or enjoy taking in its beauty from afar.
For all those who love Mount Royal, here is a unique opportunity to support a shared vision of the Mountain and raise awareness of it internationally.
UNESCO World Heritage status will make it possible to achieve the highest standards of protection for Mount Royal and ensure that the community can continue to enjoy this exceptional place for generations to come.
We love the Mountain. Let’s support UNESCO status for Mount Royal.
