Updates on the Papineau Numérique Project – October 2020

Land surveys 100% completed.

As of October 29, 2020, all surveys of some 4,000 lots included in Phase 1 of Papineau Numérique were completed.

The next step, which is applying for permits (pole access rights) to the structures owners, mainly Hydro-Québec and Bell, is ongoing. Recent announcements from the Quebec government, in addition to the establishment of a provincial coordination table, are reassuring as to the collaboration of the telecommunications companies in accelerating the processing of access requests to their structures.
