Established by the City of Montréal, the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau has a mission to preserve, plan, promote and develop this major urban park, oversee the healthy coexistence of activities which occur there and ensure its longevity for current and future generations.
In 2030, Parc Jean-Drapeau has reinvented itself to become one of the parks that is emblematic of the city. The Parc is highly regarded for the diversity of its individual and collective experiences it offers in conjunction with nature, landscapes, history, culture and sports.
It is a laboratory of best practices in sustainable development; it celebrates its heritage; it is a distinctive destination; it is a source of pride for Montréal's society. It is an engaged leader, geared toward excellence, a unifier of partnerships and involved in its community.
The guiding principles serve as the rules of conduct and oversee the organization's operational process and major strategic decisions.
The design principles translate the action rules which ensure the implementation of the development projects.
The areas of development set the priorities of action from which the triennial action plans unfold
