Montreal will table its first policy on nightlife in the coming weeks. According to what Radio-Canada has learned, the City would have its first zone open 24 hours a day from 2024. The Latin Quarter would be in the crosshairs according to sources close to the matter.

During the committee on finance and administration last Thursday, the new president of the executive committee and head of economic development, Luc Rabouin, suggested that he was convinced that the long-awaited nightlife policy would would be well received and that it would be coupled with concrete action.

Thanks to sources close to the matter, Radio-Canada learned that' one of the first actions would be to designate an area where businesses could be in operation 24 hours a day, all year round.

This pilot project would aim to test the potential for economic development and the cultural enthusiasm that could be attached to it.

The Latin Quarter, which was once the heart of cultural excitement in Montreal, could be the first designated zone, according to information collected by Radio-Canada. The devitalization of this neighborhood is well known and the 24-hour opening of businesses could slow down their exodus.

The Latin Quarter faces devitalization for several years.

If this pilot project works, other areas, mainly in the city center, would be considered.

Still according to our sources, to help theater owners, the city would adjust its noise regulations by allowing it to adapt according to the particularities of each venue. For example, each establishment would be assigned a maximum number of decibels and this could differ from one location to another. This would be a thoroughfare to promote performance halls while respecting the peace and quiet of citizens.

Performance halls could be assigned a maximum number of admissible decibels depending on their particularities.

Finally, to prevent conflicts from breaking out between theater owners and their neighbors, we would propose preventing any construction of housing adjacent to a performance hall, throughout the island of Montreal. This would make it possible to avoid other legalized conflicts like the one that afflicted the La Tulipe performance hall located in the Plateau Mont-Royal borough.

These proposals would be included in the action plan linked to the new policy on Montreal nightlife. It should be announced by January. Remember that the City of Montreal has invested $2.1 million in 2022 for Montreal night culture. This money will have made it possible in particular to develop around fifteen pilot projects and to set up a subsidy program to better soundproof alternative performance halls with fewer than 400 seats, a program still in force.
