The City of Montreal is launching a new user-friendly website.
The new site, montreal.ca, will go live in the coming months but the beta version was launched earlier this week.
The current Ville de Montreal website is a bit out of date. You can’t pay for permits online or contest a statement of offence.

Starting at the beginning of April, according to montreal.ca, Montrealers will be able to get licences for cats and dogs online, instead of at municipal offices.
Other online services include:
- Outdoor cafes
- Swimming pools
- Doors and windows
- Decks, balconies and roofs
The new website will revamp users abilities to report a snow removal issue, make service requests, pay and contest city offences and register for city activities and day camps.
The new site will also include the option to customize a user account. With this account, Montrealers will be able to receive notices and alerts about situations that affect daily life in the city: parking, broken water mains, snow removal, repairing potholes or street lights, and removing graffiti.
The site will also be accessible to people with visual and hearing impediments.
The new city website will continually release updates until the official full launch at the end of Summer 2019. To check out the beta version of the site, visit beta.montreal.ca.
