Special Intervention Zone
Following the major floods that occurred last spring, the provincial government issued an order-in-council to establish a special intervention zone (which they refer to as ZIS, for zone d'intervention spéciale). This zone takes into account the comments received at the public meetings held last July 4 in the 16 regions of Québec concerned.
A moratorium on the construction of new buildings and the reconstruction of buildings destroyed by flooding is therefore now in effect for municipalities within the ZIS. It should be noted that the ZIS applies to the area flooded during the 2017 and 2019 spring floods and targets some 0-20-year floodplains, as defined by the Government of Québec.

For any questions on this subject, or to report an error in the boundaries of the ZIS, residents may call 450 621-3500, ext. 1238, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 19 at the very latest.
