How to get municipal services

Call 514-485-6800 or send a message to info@cotesaintluc.org and it will be forwarded to the department in charge. They will call or write back with an answer.

Waste collection

Curbside waste collection is ongoing. However, the waste collection services have requested that residents place their closed bins at the curb 24 hours before the start of the collection.

Directional walking 

To help increase the space between pedestrians and to better respect social distancing rules,  the City encourages pedestrians to walk in the same direction as traffic when using sidewalks. This measure will prevent people from crossing each other on the same sidewalk and will promote the recommended minimum distance of two metres between people.

City Council meetings

City Council meetings are not open to a live audience as a live stream at YouTube.com/CoteSaintLuc. The public can ask questions before the meeting at questionperiod@cotesaintluc.org.

Taxation relief measures

Similar to the federal and provincial governments, the City of Côte Saint-Luc is providing relief measures early to reassure its residents that it is doing everything it can on their behalf. See Taxation Relief Measures due to COVID-19 for more information.
