The Québec Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks, and the Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for the National Capital region, announced investments through the ClimatSol Program totalling $15M to revitalize Brownfields sites located in the Québec City area. Initially, $5M has been allocated to the remediation of 25 contaminated sites. An additional sum of $10M will be used to remediate two major sites in Pointe-aux-Lièvres and d'Estimauville where a vast redevelopment project is anticipated.
The ClimatSol Program was created to help municipalities promote Brownfield rehabilitation and to encourage the inclusion in redevelopment projects of elements that have a real and measurable impact towards reducing or avoiding greenhouse gas emissions, increasing energy efficiencies, creating green spaces or integrating green technologies.
