2. Tempo rules

If you are eligible to install a tempo, the next step is to complete the application form and pay the annual fee of $75 at City Hall. The form will soon be available at CoteSaintLuc.org/tempos or at City Hall (5801 Cavendish Blvd.).

Temporary car shelters can be set up from November 1. Car shelters are allowed until April 15 of the following year.
The tempo must be translucent white canvas with clear window of at least 0/56m² (6 sq. ft.). This window must be less than 1.83m (6 ft.) from the opening of the tempo. The tempo must be fitted with a dismantable tubular metallic frame.
It must be located at a minimum distance of:

  • 1.98m (6 ft. 6 in.) from a fire hydrant
  • 0.99m (3 ft. 3 in.) from the rear edge of the city sidewalk
  • 1.52m (5 ft.) from the city roadway pavement where no sidewalk exists
  • 4.88m (16 ft.) from the curve of the roadway at an intersection

It is the owner’s responsibility to make sure the installation is in keeping with the standards stipulated in By-Law 2217-57. If the installation does not comply with city bylaws, the city could force the owner to make the necessary adjustments, subject to the fines provided for in the bylaw.

Note: If you live in a single-family home with no garage and already have a tempo permit, then you do not need to apply for a new one.
