From April 23 to 29, 2017, the City of Côte Saint-Luc joins communities across Canada in celebrating the county’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.
“Côte Saint-Luc is home is to more than 530 active volunteers,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “This includes our first responders at EMS, our vCOP patrollers, sports coaches and officials, actors and production staff of our Dramatic Society, and the many people who donate their time at the Côte Saint-Luc Library and the Parks and Recreation Department. Thank you to everyone who gives up their time to enrich the lives of people in Côte Saint-Luc.”
In 2016, Côte Saint-Luc distributed 15 awards to its Volunteers of the Year. See the list and video at CoteSaintLuc.org/VolunteerAwards2016.

The City of Côte Saint-Luc recently launched a pilot project to allow dogs on leashes in six parks and several green spaces.
“Dog owners have told us they appreciate being able to bring their pets to city parks and green spaces,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “We found a good balance by selecting certain parks and ensuring a safe distance from playgrounds and splash pads for the pilot project.”
When in public, dog owners must always keep their dog on a leash, have up-to-date dog tags issued by Côte Saint-Luc or any other municipality, and scoop up after their dog.
The parks or green spaces that now allow leashed dogs include Aaron Hart Park along David Lewis St., Harold Greenspon Park on Borden Ave., the green space between Marc Chagall Ave. and the parking lot of the Bernard Lang Civic Centre, the green space on Baily Rd. between Northluc and Cavendish, the green space on Baily Rd. between Lyndale and Glencrest, and a section of Kirwan Park between Blossom and Wentworth.
“We’ve achieved our goal of having dog-friendly parks that serve all parts of the city,” Mayor Brownstein said. “We will continue to monitor how the parks or green spaces are being used, to decide whether we should expand dog-friendly parks to more areas.”
The city’s exclusive dog park is located on Mackle Rd, between Caldwell and Parkhaven.
We wish all our Côte Saint-Luc dogs and their owners a happy, tail-wagging holiday season.

Congratulations to all of our extraordinary Cote Saint-Luc volunteers who were recently feted at the Cineplex Odeon in the Cavendish Mall. Hundreds of volunteers were present for a unique video presentation introducing each of the winners from every sphere of life in our city.
Cote Saint-Luc has been blessed with a rich sense of volunteerism for over 50 years. Whether its in sports and recreation, culture and leisure or public safety, Cote Saint-Luc is a wonderful place to live in large part because of the generosity of spirit, time and activity offered by so many hundreds of residents all year long.
As a long time volunteer myself, getting involved in the Emergency Measures Organization back in 1979, I can easily relate to our volunteers, of any age, and understand just how enjoyable and rewarding it is to get involved and to give back to one’s community.
A special shout out to the incredible, outstanding life-savers at EMS and to our dedicated members of vCOP.
A million thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers,
