What's New

The SPVM would like to make the community aware of a type of fraud that is targeting senior citizens called the Grandparent scam.
 
In this scam, the scammer will call the senior citizen claiming to be a family member in distress. They will ask the senior if they know who is calling, and then assume that identity. Typically, the fraudster will say that they are in some sort of trouble and urgently need money to resolve their emergency. (Examples – International trouble, claim to be stuck in a foreign country needing money to get back home, Legal trouble – they have been arrested and need bail money, Medical trouble – they’ve been in an accident and have been injured or injured someone else). They will then ask the senior to send cash or a bank transfer, playing on the emotions of the senior citizen using the urgency of the situation to help their loved one in order to convince them to hand over the money.
 
The SPVM is advising the community to be vigilant when receiving calls of this nature. When in doubt, ask the caller a personal question that only that family member would know (like where they were born, or a specific family memory). Never transfer or give money to the caller, and report all suspicious calls to your community police station at 514 280-0101, or contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by calling 1-888-495-8501 or visiting their website at antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca.

remise cheque ukraine bviMay 12, 2022 – Beaconsfield Mayor Georges Bourelle wrapped up the City’s fundraising campaign for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, established by the Canada-Ukraine Foundation and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, by handing over a donation of $31,865 to the Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Montréal, Mr. Eugene Czolij, during his official visit to City Hall on May 11, 2022.
 
As previously announced, Beaconsfield residents were invited to donate to this fundraiser which ended on April 14.  In addition to the amount of $10,000 approved by Council, the City also matched donations made by individual citizens up to a maximum of $20,000, meaning that citizens have generously given $11,865. 
 
“On behalf of Council, I wish to express once more that we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with the Ukrainian community in Québec. Our hearts go out to all those whose lives have been devastated by this war,” stated Mayor Bourelle.
 
“I truly appreciate this act of great generosity and significant support for the Ukrainian people, victims of an unprovoked war,” declared Mr. Czolij.
 
It is still possible to contribute to an online fundraiser set up by the Canada-Ukraine Foundation to help millions of Ukrainian families displaced by this war, at canadahelps.org/en/dn/70605 (Canada-Ukraine Foundation). 
 
 
March 31, 2022 – With the goal to enhance the property of the Centennial Marina and the adjacent park, the City authorized the submission of a revised grant application for this flagship project to the program Aide au développement des infrastructures culturelles managed by the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications (MCC) at the March 28 Council meeting.
 
The original grant application was submitted in 2021 in order to take the first steps to achieve this revitalization project, which includes the construction of a new multipurpose centre located on the marina property. Following discussions with the representatives of the ministry, the project was revised in order to increase the versatility of the spaces, to limit the footprint by highlighting the natural character of the site, and to provide an estimate that reflects current market conditions.
 
As a result of this exercise, the total area of the building has been reduced by 31%, with a revised project cost of $15,599,000 for the construction of the new centre as well as the adjoining landscaping. For a potential start of construction in 2024, this estimate includes an inflation rate of 6.1% for 2022 and a rate of 4.2% for 2023. The revised cost for professional fees, equipment, and other expenses is estimated at $4,035,000. According to the conditions of the program Aide au développement des infrastructures culturelles, the City is requesting a grant of $3,038,209. The City hopes to receive a response to the grant application during the fall of 2022.
 
The revitalization project meets the criteria of other financial assistance programs, for which grant applications will be submitted following acceptance by the MCC. A fundraising campaign with private donors is also planned. The City's contribution will be funded through a combination of a loan by-law, as well as from the City’s reserves and surpluses available at the time of the project implementation.
 
“These public and private contributions are essential to respect the financial capacity of taxpayers and realize a quality project for the benefit of the entire community The participatory consultations held in 2019 made it possible to reach clear consensus that these exceptional sites must be revitalized, and that this initiative should be a vehicle for the sustainable development and quality of life of our city”, underlined Mayor Bourelle.
Launched in 2018, the Reimagining SPACE project is framed by a vision to develop a project to revitalize Centennial Park and the Lord Reading property with the collaboration of Beaconsfield residents that combines culture, leisure and nature. Following consultations that highlighted, among other things, deficiencies in the Library (our busiest community hub in the City) the Project Steering Committee issued a series of recommendations in 2019. These include the following:
 
  • The marina property should be integrated with Centennial Park;
  • The redevelopment of Centennial Park should preserve its natural character;
  • The construction of a multi-purpose centre (including a library and community spaces) will serve as an anchor, allowing our community to enjoy this unique waterfront space.
February 17, 2022 - In 2021, the Commission municipale du Québec (CMQ) conducted a compliance audit with five municipalities to determine compliance with certain legislative and regulatory provisions relating to the publication of documents and information on contracts in the Système électronique d’appel d’offres (SÉAO) of the government of Quebec. The audit also aimed to verify that municipalities publish information on their websites regarding the list of contracts entered into and involving an expenditure of at least 25,000 dollars. 
 
Following the compliance audit by the CMQ, the City of Beaconsfield obtained a result of 96%. The City participated diligently and with rigour in this audit and is pleased with the audit report provided by the CMQ team. From the publication process to the awarding of the contract, Beaconsfield proves to be in the lead and attests to the quality and robustness of its control procedures in place for its calls for tenders relating to the execution of works, professional mandates and the purchase of goods and services. “We are very satisfied to see that the overall result is reassuring and that the City is in compliance for the vast majority of the elements audited”, explains the Mayor of Beaconsfield, Georges Bourelle.
 
The City provided all the information available and required to the best of its knowledge to enable the proper conduct and conclusions of this audit and takes note of the few changes to make in order to improve its internal controls. “This CMQ audit report confirms that the administration is working effectively and efficiently for the entire population of Beaconsfield” explains the Director General, Patrice Boileau.
 
The City of Beaconsfield wishes to thank the CMQ team for their professionalism and their constructive comments, which will allow the City to adjust its practices in a spirit of continuous improvement and for the benefit of all stakeholders.

montreal 2022 englishOnce again, we are proud to announce that the City of Beaconsfield has been named one of Montreal’s top employers for 2022.

For the third year in a row, the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers have selected us based on criteria such as our retirement planning assistance, our parental leave support, and our sick and personal day policies. Our flexible work arrangements, tuition subsidies, and in-house training opportunities set us apart as a top employer.

January 18, 2022 – While the Municipal Council of the City of Montréal is preparing to officially adopt its 2022 budget of 6.46 billion dollars on Friday, the City of Beaconsfield increases its claim to 6 million dollars to recuperate taxes paid in excess for regional Agglomeration services.
 
“This is a matter of fundamental fairness for us. For three years now, our residents have been paying an additional 2 million dollars per year with no added services, whereas Montréal has lowered its contribution and obtained more services over the same period. This situation contradicts the principles of municipal taxation of the Québec government: each taxpayer contributes to the cost of services in proportion to the benefits obtained,” reiterates Beaconsfield’s Mayor Georges Bourelle. 
 
This injustice started in 2019 with the adoption of a Ministerial Order that differed from the rules established in the 2008 agreement on the reconstitution of the municipalities following the demergers in 2006. The new calculation algorithm became incomplete by the omission of the neutrality factor, thereby distorting the historic equity that had previously established the proportionate shares of the 16 municipalities on the island of Montréal for regional services, such as police and fire services, public transit, drinking water and waste water management. 
 
In 2020 and 2021, the Minister for Municipal Affairs and Housing, Andrée Laforest, tried unsuccessfully to find consensual solutions with Montréal who rejected them all. “All propositions aiming at re-establishing equity and justice would increase Montréal’s contribution and reduce ours. That is the only reason for Montréal’s continued stonewalling,” explains Mayor Bourelle. 
 
The mayor of Beaconsfield states that his administration has taken all useful and necessary actions with the Québec government as well as with the City of Montréal to address this overtaxation prior to resorting to legal procedures in order to secure and protect the rights of the citizens of Beaconsfield.
 
The injustice will get worse
 
Mayor Bourelle also notes that the injustice against Beaconsfield and, consequently, other municipalities with high residential density on the island of Montréal will be exacerbated by increasing property values which will be reflected in the next three-year (2023-2024-2025) property evaluation roll. Experts project an average increase of 30% in residential property values, but little change for commercial and industrial properties. This penalizes in particular the municipalities of Beaconsfield, Westmount, Mount-Royal, Hampstead, Kirkland, Dollard-des-Ormeaux and Montreal-West. 
 
“This injustice is intolerable. It is unconceivable to pay more taxes without receiving additional services, just because of a distorted algorithm resulting in inequitable sharing of regional service costs. It unnecessarily reduces the contribution of municipalities that have many businesses and industries at the expense of cities where the municipal taxes are paid, for the most part, by the citizens,” concludes Mayor Bourelle.

Maquette parc BriarwoodThe redevelopment of Briarwood Park will begin shortly! A survey was sent to park users and residents living near the park to enable them to have a real influence on the ideas developed and decisions to be made to create a collective vision, while ensuring that the future of Briarwood Park meets the needs and desires of the community for years to come.

The results of the survey have made it possible to develop an accessible, inclusive and contemporary development concept that will present a first in Beaconsfield, a very first splash pad area.

We invite you to consult the 3D visual of the park (note that some colors and some items may differ).

Construction will begin very soon and will be underway during the fall and will be completed in Spring 2022. The City will inform citizens when the park will be accessible. Note that realization of this project was part of the City’s Parks and Green spaces Master Plan.

June 15, 2021 – The Mayor of Beaconsfield, Georges Bourelle and the members of City Council officially reaffirm the importance of the city’s bilingual status for the community of Beaconsfield as a pledge for multiculturalism, inclusion, tolerance and comprehension in a generous society. 
 
By adopting a resolution to that effect at last night’s Council meeting, the mayor and the elected officials of City Council confirm this fact in the light of Draft Bill 96 proposed by the Québec government to preserve the French language.
  
“For us, this resolution conveys an important message that reflects the spirit of our community. The English and French language have both forged our society and continue to unite our community in a social environment that is inclusive, tolerant and generous, open and multicultural,” states Mayor Georges Bourelle.
 
The City’s bilingual status was already confirmed, even prior to Draft Bill 96, since the most recent census conducted by Statistics Canada showed that more than 55% of Beaconsfield’s population identified English as their native language. 
 
Draft Bill 96 allows municipalities to maintain their current bilingual status, even if less than 50% of the population are native English speakers, provided that the City Council adopts a new resolution in that sense.
 
 
 
 
May 19, 2021 - The City of Beaconsfield launched the i3P project to identify local actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and to adapt to climate change. The consultations held over the course of this project enabled the citizens to prioritize measures to increase community resilience and improve Beaconsfield’s quality of life.
 
The work of the i3P project culminated in the adoption of the Climate Change Adaptation Plan and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Plan at the Council meeting on May 17.  The Climate Action Plan, a synthesis of these two plans, not only presents the principal sources of GHG and the local vulnerabilities, but also identifies specific projects to reduce GHG and limit climate risk. 
 
The development of these two action plans was supported by a subsidy from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) as part of the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Programme. Beaconsfield also benefited from the collaboration with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy and ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability as part of the Showcase Cities pilot project. A partnership with QUEST and Pollution Probe allowed to develop with other Canadian municipalities the Smart Energy Communities Benchmark.
 
At the same Council meeting, the City of Beaconsfield also declared a Climate Emergency to emphasize the urgency of taking action on Climate Change and to support the implementation of the measures identified in the two action plans. Towards that end, Beaconsfield will also benefit from the expertise of Concertation Montréal to develop guides to support residents’ climate actions that respond to local priorities. 
 
“As part of the support for ecological transition offered to the suburban cities by Concertation Montréal, we have been working since last fall with the City of Beaconsfield to develop tools aimed at environmentally responsible practices for residential heating and greening. In this context, we proudly welcome the adoption by the City of Beaconsfield of its Climate Change Adaptation and GHG Emissions Reduction plans. This is a great step forward!” declares Richard Deschamps, president of Concertation Montréal.
 
The Climate Emergency declaration calls on the citizens of Beaconsfield to join the City’s efforts by taking climate actions of their own, thereby contributing to a healthy and resilient community for present and future generations.  During Climate Action Week from May 31 to June 6, all citizens, schools and merchants of Beaconsfield are invited to share their climate efforts and inspire their community. A dedicated webpage for Beaconsfield’s Climate Action Plan provides the details of how to participate.
 
"Municipalities play a central role in climate protection because they have a direct and indirect impact on almost half of Canada's GHG emissions. Extreme weather events have had important local impacts. It is our responsibility to implement concrete climate action and to take the next steps together. The actions undertaken will serve to make our community more resilient to climate change,” says Georges Bourelle, Mayor of Beaconsfield.

Beaconsfield is among twenty-five municipalities across Canada that successfully completed an intensive pilot focusing on local climate action.

 
February 4, 2021 – In August 2019, the City of Beaconsfield was selected to join the first Showcase Cities cohort led by the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM) Canada. As a member of this network, we received free support to spur climate action at a local level.
 
Over the past year, Beaconsfield has benefited from targeted technical support, training and access to tools and resources. With the help of this support, the City was able to develop three action plans of the i3P project to make our community more resilient to the impacts of climate change: GHG Reduction Plan, Community Energy Plan and Climate Adaptation Plan.
 
"We are proud of this unique initiative, which allowed us to identify local priorities for climate action, from innovative projects to reduce GHG emissions to initiatives that protect our community from extreme weather events. This was a major challenge that our administration met with great success," said Georges Bourelle, Mayor of Beaconsfield.
 
With the help of ICLEI and the FCM and the other participating municipalities, Beaconsfield achieved the GHG emissions inventory badge, as well as the Climate risk and vulnerability assessment badge, as awarded by the global program of GCoM.
 
Through participation in this pilot, Beaconsfield has been recognized as a leader on local climate action both nationally and internationally. This sets up the conditions for further success as municipalities tackle the issues of climate change.
 
The initiative combines two leading domestic climate programs, the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program and Building Adaptive and Resilient Communities (BARC), with the leading global climate program. The GCoM Canada is piloting this approach, which will build on FCM and ICLEI’s more than 25 years’ experience in delivering climate change programs in Canada.

September 10, 2020 – According to a preliminary pre-project study commissioned by the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) for the construction of a sound wall along a 5km stretch on the south side of Highway 20 in Beaconsfield, costs will increase by 127% from $20.5M to $46.6M.
 
“This is a substantial increase considering that the MTQ’s pre-project study is only at the preliminary stage. Yet five years ago, the minister at that time had guaranteed that there would be no cost overrun, and the budget would be respected”, recalls Mayor Georges Bourelle.
 
In 2015, Beaconsfield had reached an advantageous agreement with the then minister that the City would contribute 25% or approximately $5M of the implementation costs. “This was already a major commitment for our City considering the relative impact of such an expense on our budget”, indicates the mayor.
 
Since the beginning of this project, Mayor Bourelle has maintained the necessity of a citizen’s consultation and approval for a financial participation of the City in view of its sanitary, geographic and financial impact. This is even more significant today: “The skyrocketing costs make the social acceptability of this project even more difficult”, says the mayor.
 
According to a survey conducted among citizens by a renowned independent firm, the community is deeply polarized on the pertinence of the wall and the cost-sharing between districts. 
 
The preliminary pre-project study shows that the wall with a height of 4 to 4.5m, erected from east to west, will allow for a noise reduction varying between 7 to 13 decibels. Current noise levels vacillate between 63 to 71 decibels over 24 hours. In its policy on traffic noise adopted in 1998, the MTQ acknowledges its share of responsibility regarding sound pollution generated by road traffic. The MTQ has committed to intervening if the anticipated reduction by mitigation measures is at least 7 decibels.
 
In order to continually ensure a transparent decision process, Mayor Bourelle and members of Municipal Council will request MTQ officials to present the project in a public meeting once the final report is completed.

sewer grate 2sewer grate rectThe Public Works department has noticed that certain sewer lines in your sector are blocked due to an accumulation of small branches and other small bits of debris which can only be there if they were purposefully put down the gaps in the sewer grates.  Recently, the accumulation of debris has caused many sewer back-ups.

We would ask for your cooperation in stopping this recurring issue in your sector by asking you to inform your children and anyone else who you might see putting debris in the gaps in the sewer grates of the consequences of their actions.

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Muted citizen response regarding utility and financing

November 20, 2015 – Beaconsfield residents are cautious in their assessment of the utility and financing methods of a sound wall along the south side of Highway 20, despite the exceptional proposal made by the Provincial Minister of Transport Robert Poëti for its implementation.

This was revealed by a survey of 600 adult Beaconsfield residents conducted by Léger Marketing from October 16 to 23, 2015; the results were weighted according to sex, age, owner or tenant status and district of residence. Such research reflects an overall position of citizens regarding the project’s relevance and financing methods. The results can be expected to be accurate to within 4% if repeated again 19 out of 20 times.

“We have conducted this survey to become fully aware of the overall position of our residents on this project. The results confirm the caution with which we have handled this matter from the beginning”, explains Mayor Georges Bourelle.

According to the pollster’s analysis, the survey results show that “the majority of the citizens seem unconvinced of the sound wall’s necessity […], because they have doubts regarding its efficiency and appearance or disapprove of the costs related to the implementation of the project.

“This first level of consultation allows us to take stock of the stakes to be considered before deciding whether to accept the Minister’s proposal. We will now address the financing and consultation methods to ensure that the decision will be made with total transparency as part of a democratic exercise which will respect all parties concerned”, adds the Mayor.

Transport Minister Robert Poëti recently offered to bear 75% instead of 50% of the project costs. Despite this exceptional proposal, Beaconsfield’s part would still amount to five million dollars.

The survey results demonstrate that the noise problems caused by the highway affect a very slight majority of respondents in the three districts closest to Highway 20, whereas the respondents in the three other districts declare to be hardly or not affected.

The two main reasons given by those opposed to the project are the costs (53%) and the fact that they are not directly affected by the noise generated by highway traffic (46%).

This trend is even more pronounced when considering the cost issue. The most impacted districts favour a general cost-sharing solution, while those less or not impacted believe that the costs should be covered by the affected owners.

The City of Beaconsfield has implemented an automated call system called CodeRed to provide the means to reach citizens in an emergency. It is an efficient call system that can reach a large number of people in a very short time and can be deployed in a specific area, even a street if, for example, a broken water main were to force interruption of the water supply. In other cases, authorities could use it to announce an environmental accident, a gas leak or other emergency. The message could include information on procedures to be followed.

Is your phone number confidential, have you only a cell phone or have you moved in the last month?
The CodeRed database system contains numbers of landlines in our territory. In case of an emergency, citizens are called at home, on their cell, or at both numbers. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called. The CodeRed automated call system gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own telephone or cellular numbers directly to the system's database. This can be done by visiting the City's website and clicking CodeRed.

Caller ID

When you see 866 419-5000 displayed, you will know the call is from the City. If you would like to hear the last message delivered to your phone, simply dial the number back.

This project complements other procedures already established as part of the City's emergency plan to improve efficiency during emergency situations.
