Saddlebrook aqueduct network: complete outdoor watering ban

Because of an aqueduct equipment break on the Saddlebrook network, the City of Saint-Lazare has the obligation to immediately and completely ban on the outdoor use of the water treated and distributed by this network to protect its water supply and to ensure the safety of its residents and their basic domestic water needs. This measure is effective immediately for and for an undetermined period. The City recommends residents to deactivate their automatic watering systems at the risk of receiving a fine.

To find out if you are serviced by this network, view the map on the Town’s website.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Preparatory work in Vallée-Chaline

Warning: distribution of a circular letter in the sector of Vallée-Chaline

Saint-Lazare (Québec), Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - The City of Saint-Lazare urges Vallée-Chaline residents  to call for caution and prudence when posters or anonymous letters, concerning the slope stabilization work along the Quinchien river, are displayed in their sector or distributed to their home.

In a recent anonymous English letter, distributed door-to-door, false information was published concerning the partial relocation of the Hydro-Québec lines and landslide solutions. The letter’s purpose was also to raise concerns among residents in general, whether or not these homeowners’ properties are included in the planned work.

In case of doubt, the City encourages Vallée-Chaline residents to validate the source and the accuracy of the information. The City would like to remind residents that no work will be done on a property unless the City obtained, beforehand, the authorization of the owner. Furthermore, every property having its peculiarities, the work will vary from one property to the next. Let’s remind residents that the work required for the slope stabilization is free of charge for those concerned and that all the work, whatever its nature, is planned to reduce the impact on people, their property and assets as well as the flora and fauna. Another general information session will be offered to Vallée-Chaline residents, at the most appropriate time, to outline the progress and scheduled work.

The Vallée-Chaline project files can be accessed on the Town’s website at For any question pertaining to these activities, Vallée-Chaline residents may call their dedicated phone line at 514-250-0964.

Highlights from the survey conducted among Saint-Lazare
residents on issues of concern

SAINT-LAZARE (Quebec), on Thursday, July 5, 2018. – In an effort to better understand the opinions of Saint-Lazare voters, mainly with regards to the construction of a roundabout, the holding of the Au Galop equestrian festival and the attractiveness of the town centre, the Council mandated Léger Marketing to conduct a survey in May 2018.

Elected officials will analyze these results over the next few months to help them steer certain projects and will follow up on them during the next budgetary process in the fall.

Based on the information gathered by Léger Marketing, the reconfiguration of the Avenue Bédard and Chemin Saint-Louis intersection is the main priority for Saint-Lazare residents (38%). Note that when considering only those who live less than 2 km away from the intersection, this number jumps to 60%. Most residents are aware of the traffic issues in this area (77%) and the majority of the town’s population is aware of the project for the construction of a roundabout at this intersection (79%). A large majority of respondents supports the idea of a roundabout (65%); of this number, the majority (71%) believes it is the best way to resolve traffic issues in this particular area. Those least in favour of the idea believe there are other ways, such as traffic lights, to address this problem (51%).

Residents who visit the downtown area most often do so mainly for grocery shopping, running errands or making other purchases (83%) while those who visit it less than once a week say they live too far from the town centre / that it is not part of their commute (55%). More than a third of these respondents (36%) find the commercial options in this part of town unsatisfactory.

Most residents are in favor (76%) of a social housing project for low-income individuals—for example, families in need, single-parent families and individuals with disabilities.

Nearly all respondents (91%) know about the Parc nature les Forestiers-de-Saint-Lazare. Many of the respondents claim that, although they are aware of the park, they do not visit it—either because they do not practice any outdoor activities (26%) or because the activities held there do not suit their needs (23%).

Almost all of the respondents (96%) heard about the Saint-Lazare Au Galop Festival over the course of the last year. A decrease in the event’s attendance was noted between 2016 and 2017. Although 63% of respondents are in favour of the Saint-Lazare equestrian festival being held, 54% of them believe that its allocated budget should be reduced. Their opinion is that an amount of $20 per household would be considered reasonable (41%).

The complete results of the survey conducted by the Léger firm are available on the City’s Web site at ville.saint‑

The Léger firm interviewed 400 residents 18 years of age or older randomly selected from the entire Saint-Lazare territory. For a population of 20,000 inhabitants, the sample size provides a trend and a margin of error of ±4.9%. Beyond this sample size, the trend and margin of error varies only slightly (for example, 0.07% less for a sample of 600). Note that samples of 1,000 people are generally used for Quebec overall, which has a population of 8 million, and 1,500 for Canada, which has a population of over 35 million.

About the survey
When adopting its first budget on January 30, 2018, the new council agreed to survey citizens to find out more about their views on these issues and the level of priority they want to grant each of them.
