A childcare centre (CPE) will soon open in Faubourg Contrecœur

It is now official: the Faubourg Contrecœur will have its own childcare centre (CPE). The SHDM received today from the Executive Committee of the Ville de Montréal the go ahead to sell to CPE Bilbo a plot of land that the corporation was reserving for a community project. This was the final stage of approval of the transaction following the submission by the CPE, in August 2016, of a purchase offer.

“We are very pleased to see this project come to fruition as it meets the needs expressed by the community and contributes to making the Faubourg Contrecœur a living environment adapted to the needs of families, couples and seniors. The CPE Bilbo team will diversify the services offered in this neighborhood, which already has a large multi-generational park, a construction project for a senior’s residence, public transport services and a developing commercial zone” said SHDM’s Managing Director, Nancy Shoiry.

“It’s great news for us to know that our project to build a brand new CPE is moving forward and on schedule. We are already working on plans for the construction of a building that will be specifically designed to meet the needs of the toddlers and of our educational teams” said France Thibeault, Director of CPB Bilbo.

The CPE Bilbo will be located on Contrecœur Street, on a plot of land located between Carlos-D’Alcantara Park and the commercial zone. Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017 and will be completed in spring 2018, in time for the relocation of CPE Bilbo in June 2018.
