A city committed to human rights

A bilingual municipality with a diverse, predominantly English-speaking population, Côte Saint-Luc has been a leader on human rights issues. In September 2000, the City inaugurated the Human Rights Walkway at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park. The Walkway is dedicated to those men and women who, by their steadfast commitment to humankind, have held high the torch of human rights and let it light the world.
