2016-2019+ Report / Montréal UNESCO City of Design

This is Montréal's 2016–2019+ interim report to UNESCO for renewal of its City of Design status, submitted on December 15, 2020. Highlighted in this report are three major projects that were completed during this period of consolidation, which has seen us continue to develop municipal design commissions and activities that promote Montréal talents: a new 2018–2020 sector-based action plan for design, Create Montréal, launched in May 2018, the Montréal 2030 Agenda for Quality and Exemplarity in Design and Architecture, adopted by municipal council in December 2019, and the first statistical portrait of Montréal’s design ecosystem, made public in September 2020. The report outlines our action plan for the next four years and summarizes our main achievements and benefits for Montréal being a UNESCO City of Design.
