Montréal, November 23, 2021 – Last January, the Agence de mobilité durable (the “Agency”) celebrated its first anniversary. The Agency is now proud to publish its very first annual report, which highlights all that it has accomplished in 2020, with a particular focus on agility.

“We owe the success of this first year to the dedication of our resilient and highly-motivated team,” said Laurent Chevrot, General Manager. “We have also begun to put in place the necessary expertise, systems and initiatives to take on a role that now extends beyond parking to include mobility and street sharing throughout the City of Montréal. We have continued to monitor and manage parking services throughout this unprecedented year.

A new organization with exciting mandates

On January 1, 2020, the Agency took over the combined operations of the Société en commandite Stationnement de Montréal (SCSM) and the Section de l’application de la règlementation du stationnement (SARS) of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). The Agency was established as a new paramunicipal organization and given five specific mandates by the City of Montréal:

  • Develop a mobile app for rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest
  • Introduce licence plate recognition technology
  • Implement a tiered pricing system
  • Enhance the parking monitoring department
  • Improve parking for self-service vehicle

In summer 2020, the Agency began working on an organizational strategic plan for 2021-2023 that would distill the Agency’s initiatives into a mission, vision and values and define its standing and scope in the field of sustainable mobility. The Agency consulted extensively with its partners and employees throughout this process. The 2021-2023 Organizational Strategic Plan was published in 2021. 

Putting people first


The Agency has listened to and supported its employees every step of the way. This approach has been crucial to the Agency’s success and its ability to provide essential services in its first year.
The Agency not only reorganized its approach to work and to integrating new teams, but it also hired a significant number of employees with the experience and skills necessary to carry out the Agency’s mandates. All of the Agency's teams have risen to the challenges that come with introducing a new paramunicipal organization and adapting to technological advances in parking and street sharing management.
