  1. Green Mobility: A Tale of Five Canadian Cities Un article très intéressant de SustainableCitiesCollective..... qui parle de Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa et Calgary. Il y a plein de tableau qui montre le taux d'usager du transport-en-commun dans les villes, de densité, l'usage de l'automobile, type de logement, etc... À voir! Montreal is the largest city of the province of Quebec and the second largest city of Canada. It is located on the island of Montreal and is well known as one of the most European-like cities in North America and as a cycling city. It is also famous for its underground city and its excellent shopping, gourmet food, active nightlife and film and music festivals. Montreal's public transit consists of a metro and bus network, paratransit service for people with functional limitations, and the public taxi, which is a form of transport provided in low-density areas where it is not possible to establish regular bus services, according to the Sociéte de Transport de Montréal. Five commuter rail lines connect downtown Montreal with 83 municipalities in the Montreal metropolitan region, according to L'Agence métropolitaine de transport de la région de Montréal; and the 747 bus line links several downtown metro stations with Pierre Trudeau International Airport. A bus shuttle service links the same airport with the VIA Rail train station in Dorval, a suburb of Montreal. Public transportation is considered as Montreal's preferred transportation mode for the future. And in order to encourage the use of transit, the City's Master Plan aims to intensify real-estate development near metro and commuter train stations, as well as certain public transportation corridors, according to City of Montreal Master Plan. The modal share of transport on the Island of Montreal is expected to change from 2008 to 2020 as follows: car only from 48% to 41%, public transit from 32% to 37%, active transportation (walking and biking) from 15% to 18%, and other motorized modes of transport from 5% to 4%, according to the STM's Strategic Plan 2020. Montreal has nearly 600 kilometres of dedicated bikeways, according to Tourisme-Montreal. And Quebec Cycling, a non-profit organization, runs two programs designed to promote the use of active transportation in the city. The first, "Operation Bike-to-Work" supports employees who want to cycle to work and employers who want to encourage their employees to cycle to work. The second, "On-foot, by bike, active city" promotes active and safe travel in municipalities —especially near schools— to improve health, the environment and the well-being of citizens, according to Vélo Québec http://sustainablecitiescollective.com/luis-rodriguez/200096/green-mobility-tale-five-canadian-cities
  2. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/18/business/global/hip-cities-that-think-about-how-they-work.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&smid=fb-share The story of young people, full of ambition, energy, skill and talent, moving to enticing cities that call to them like a siren’s song is as old as modern civilization. And in a world where national borders are easier to traverse, where more countries are joining the prosperous global middle class and where the cost of a one-way plane ticket is more affordable, young professionals probably have more cities to choose from than ever before. This survey is not based solely on quality of life, number of trees or the cost of a month’s rent. Instead, we examine some cities that aim to be both smart and well managed, yet have an undeniably hip vibe. Our pick of cities that are, in a phrase, both great and good: Auckland With its beaches, inlets and lush coastal climate, the Kiwi metropolis has always had great natural beauty going for it (and, now, for the first time in 24 years, it is the home to the World Cup Rugby Champions). But we digress. Currently counting 1.5 million residents , the government is projecting the city to hit the two million-mark in just 30 years. The city has recently voted to create a new central core that mixes sustainable housing and mixed-use development. The public transportation system, which includes subways, trams, busses and ferries, is constantly being expanded. Measures to increase the density of the urban landscape, meant to ultimately prevent encroachment on surrounding lands, as well as planting “green carpets” along urban roads demonstrate a keen eye toward creating a greener future. Plus, the city is expanding its free Wi-Fi coverage, according to a city official. Auckland is doing its best to “up their game with urban design,” said Angela Jones, a spokesperson for the city, turning a beautiful but provincial capital into a smart city. Berlin This culture capital combines low rents, a white-hot arts scene, good public transportation and myriad creative types — from media to design to technology — from all over the world. Known as Europe’s largest construction zone for at least 10 of the past 20 years, 4.4-million-strong Berlin has probably changed more in that time than any other large European city. And while the restaurants have become more expensive, the clothes are now more stylish and the D.J.’s have added more attitude, there is still plenty of real city left to be discovered by the thousands of artists and young professionals who move here every year to make this the pulsing center of Germany, the powerhouse of Europe. Besides radical renovations to the government center, main train station and the old Potsdamer Platz, the city recently turned a historic airport in its heart into a vast urban park. A short-term bike-rental system is in place and the old subway system, reunited after the fall of the wall, like the city itself, is as efficient as ever. Besides artists and bohemians looking for the vibe, the city — home to several prestigious universities, research institutes and many a company headquarter — is brimming with smart scientists and savvy businessmen. Barcelona Anyone who has walked down Las Ramblas on a summer evening or has stared at the Sagrada Familia for long enough understands why this city attracts planeloads of tourists. Music, good food, great weather and strong technology and service sectors compete to make this city of 1.6 million a home for all those who want to stay beyond summer break. If all the traditional charms of Barcelona were not enough, an active city government is trying to keep this city smart, too. Under its auspices, photovoltaic solar cells have been installed on many public and private rooftops. Charging stations for electrical cars and scooters have recently been set up around the city, in preparation for the day when residents will be tooling around in their electric vehicles. A biomass processing plant is being built that will use the detritus from city parks to generate heat and electricity, and free Wi-Fi is available at hotspots around the city. Cape Town Wedged between sea and mountain, Cape Town’s natural setting is stunning. Nor does the city — with its colorful neighborhoods, historic sites, and easy charm — disappoint. And while its one of Africa’s top tourist destinations, it also attracts many new residents from around the globe. The local government is trying to lead the growing city of 3.5 million with a more inclusive government and development structure, to overcome the gross inequities of South Africa’s past. Four major universities and many research institutes make Cape Town one of the continent’s bustling research centers. Named the 2014 World Design Capital last month, the city government is encouraging a cluster of design and creative firms in a neighborhood called the Fringe. The 2010 World Cup of soccer was a boon for infrastructure, especially public transportation. A new bus system, with dedicated lanes, has been rolled out in recent years to keep the many suburbs connected and alleviate crushing traffic. Under a program called Smart Cape, libraries and civic centers have computer terminals with free Internet access. Poverty and crime are still issues in Cape Town, but overall quality of life indicators rank the city as one of the best in Africa. Copenhagen Progressive, cozy and very beautiful, the young and the elegant flock to this northern light. Rents might not be as low as in other hip cities, but the social infrastructure in this metropolitan area of 1.9 million cannot be beat. Offering a prosperous blend of art, culture and scene, this highly tolerant city is attracting young professionals lucky enough to work in the center of Danish industry and commerce. A mix of stately old European buildings and modern, green-oriented architecture speaks of a city that treasures the old but loves experimenting with the new. Despite its cool Scandinavian climate, the Danish capital might just be the most bicycle-friendly city in the world. Bike superhighways crisscross the city, and statistics show that more than a third of the city’s inhabitants commute to work or school on their trusty two-wheelers. A metro system was inaugurated in the last decade for those who choose to go without. With sunlight-flooded underground stations and clean, driverless subway cars, the system looks more like a people-mover at an international airport than an urban transport system. Having committed itself to reducing carbon levels by 20 percent before 2015, some of the city’s power is generated by wind. The city has been so successful in cleaning up its once-industrial harbor that it has been able to open three public baths in a harbor waterway. Curitiba, Brazil One of the smartest cities in Latin America, Brazil’s wealthy regional capital attracts many new inhabitants with jobs in service and production sectors, and with the promise a functioning city. The 1.7 million residents have access to a bus-based rapid transport system so good that more than 700,000 commuters use it daily. Buses run on designated lanes that, because of a unique and modern urban design, have right-of-way and preferred access to the city center. A beautiful botanical garden and other city parks, along with other strong environmental measures, keep the air largely clear of pollution, despite Curitiba’s land-locked location. The city strives to be sustainable in other ways, too. According to reports, it recently invested $106 million, or 5 percent, of its budget into its department of environment. The city government makes itself integral in the lives of Curitibans, not just seeking comment and feedback on policies, but also organizing a host of events. “Bike Night” is the latest craze in the active city. Each Tuesday, residents take to their bikes and peddle through the night, accompanied by municipal staff members. Montreal With its hearty French and North American mix, this city of 3.6 million has a real soul thanks to low living costs and long winter evenings. And it is no slouch when it comes to good food, hip culture, well-appointed museums and efficient transportation. With four major universities and plenty of bars, the nightlife in this bilingual city has a well-deserved reputation. Because the winters tend to be long and cold, the city possesses an extensive underground network connecting several downtown malls and a subterranean arts quarter. When spring finally does arrive, and snow is cleared from the many bike paths, the city puts out its 3,000 short-term-rental bicycles, known as Bixi. City-sponsored community gardens are sprouting around town, giving urbanites a chance to flex their green thumb. Montreal is an incredibly active town where festivals celebrating everything from jazz to Formula One dominate the city’s calendar during the summer. Thanks to Mount Royal, a large central park and cemetery that serves as cross-country, snowshoe and ice-skating terrain in the winter and becomes a verdant picnic ground and gathering spot in the summer, Montrealers never have to leave city limits. Santiago A vibrant mix of Latin American culture and European sensibility, this Chilean city is modern, safe and smart. The rapidly growing city of 6.7 million — , which, perhaps surprisingly, was first subject to urban planning mandates in the mid-20th century — is still ahead of others in South America when it comes to urban governance. A law curtailing urban sprawl and protecting the few natural spaces close to the city is exemplary. Beautiful old cultural jewels like the library and fine art museum are dwarfed by serious commercial skyscrapers. The smell of local food, good and inexpensive, brings life even to the streets of its financial district. One of the most extensive public transport systems on the continent whisks more than 2.3 million commuters to and from work or school every day. Because of its high altitude, pollution is a problem — one that the national government is trying to curb with various green initiatives. Short-term bike rentals exist in one of the more active parts of town, and significant city funds have been used to construct bicycle lanes. For a city this modern, however, Santiago has few parks. But the ocean is just a short drive to west and the mountains to the east. Shanghai China’s commercial heart has grown tremendously in the past couple of decades. Attracting young professionals with its jobs and opportunities rather than with museums and hip nightlife, this megacity of 23 million is surprisingly smart. Its top-down urban planning approach is efficient in a city made up of separate 16 districts and one county. City coffers are put to use building enormously ambitious infrastructure, like a deepwater port, tunnels, bridges and roadways. A good indicator for the rapid and deliberate growth of the city is the metro system. First opened in 1995, it is now the world’s longest subway network, according to city officials. Adding a futuristic aspect to the utilitarian system is a Maglev (magnetic levitation) line that connects the airport to the city, and on which the train travels at speeds of up to 431 kilometers, or 268 miles, per hour. But Shanghai’s urban development is also green. The city claims that it put the equivalent of $8 billion into environmental improvement and cleanup, which include sewage treatment systems but also an impressive number of city parks. In addition, Shanghai has made its city government more accessible by running a Web site were residents can find municipal information, and read a blog entitled “mayor’s window.” Vilnius, Lithuania One of the greenest of the former Eastern bloc capitals, Vilnius has a forward-thinking city government. In a recent Internet video that spread virally, the mayor, Arturas Zuokas, is seen crushing a Mercedes parked on a bike path with a tank. Beyond the obvious political theater of the stunt, the city, whose metropolitan area population is 850,000 takes providing good public transportation seriously. A recent study suggested that some 70 percent of the capital’s citizens either walk, bike or take the bus. Vilnius, a verdant city that despite some communist architectural clunkers is charmingly medieval and surprisingly well maintained, boasts an old town that is a Unesco world heritage site. After the fall of the old regime, the city took great pains to retool its waste disposal systems, building a modern landfill in 2005. The capital attracts young professionals, and not just from Eastern Europe, who see in Vilnius a rising star in business and appreciate all that the extensive cultural scene in the little capital has to offer.

  4. Chômage: sous les 5% en novembre Les Lavallois en emploi en hausse de 9,1% par rapport à novembre 2006 par Stéphane St-Amour Voir tous les articles de Stéphane St-Amour Article mis en ligne le 27 décembre 2007 à 7:49 source: http://www.courrierlaval.com/article-170009-Chomage-sous-les-5-en-novembre.html Chômage: sous les 5% en novembre Les Lavallois en emploi en hausse de 9,1% par rapport à novembre 2006 En baisse de 1,3% par rapport à la situation qui prévalait au mois de novembre 2006, Laval affichait, le mois dernier, le deuxième taux de chômage le plus bas des 16 régions du Québec, avec un score de 4,8%. Seule la région de la Capitale-Nationale a fait mieux que Laval en novembre, avec un taux de chômage de 4,4%. La seule autre région administrative dont le taux est inférieur à 5% est Chaudières-Appalaches, à 4,9%. Si l’île de Montréal a connu un autre mois difficile, comme l’illustre un taux de chômage de 8,2%, la région métropolitaine de recensement présente, elle, un taux de 6,7%, un dixième de point supérieur à la moyenne de 6,6% établie à l’échelle de la province. Même si le niveau de chômage des Lavallois enregistré en novembre est le plus élevé des sept derniers mois, la région poursuit sur son irrésistible lancée, qui pourrait lui permettre de boucler l’année 2007 avec un taux de chômage record inférieur à 5%. Bond de 9,1% Considérant que l’Enquête sur la population active (EPA) de Statistique Canada ne tienne compte que de données non désaisonnalisées, la seule comparaison possible est celle avec la même période au fil des années antérieures. Quand on y regarde de près, la performance lavalloise tient pratiquement du prodige, et ce, à plusieurs égards. Selon la dernière enquête, il y avait le mois dernier 208 900 Lavallois en emploi, soit une hausse de 9,1% par rapport aux 191 400 au travail 12 mois plus tôt. D’après la même étude, les Lavallois représenteraient tout près de 60% des quelque 30 500 travailleurs additionnels recensés dans la grande région métropolitaine. Et près de 20% des 95 600 nouveaux travailleurs répertoriés à l’échelle du Québec! Encore plus spectaculaires sont les variations des personnes occupées le mois dernier en comparaison au mois de novembre 2006: Laval affiche une hausse de 9,1% contre 1,6% pour la région métropolitaine et 2,5% pour l’ensemble de la province. Population active en forte hausse Autre mesure qui en dit long sur le potentiel économique de la province et du pays: la population active. Le niveau de vie de ses habitants, tout comme la productivité de ses entreprises, progressent à la mesure qu’augmente le pourcentage de sa population active. Le mois dernier, on figurait à 219 400 le nombre de Lavallois de 15 ans et plus en emploi ou en recherche active d’un emploi, une hausse de 15 500 personnes pour une variation de 7,6%. Par contre, à l’échelle du grand Montréal, l’Enquête sur la population active (EPA) note une augmentation d’à peine 12 800 personnes dites actives pour une hausse marginale de 0,6%, ce qui implique que les Lavallois auraient largement amélioré leur situation par rapport aux citoyens des régions limitrophes. Dans tout le Québec, la population active serait passée de 4 100 400 à 4 166 200 personnes, une hausse de 1,6%. Mine de rien, les Lavallois représentent 24% de ces 65 800 Québécois venus grossir les rangs de la population active. Échantillonnage Rappelons que les données mensuelles de l'EPA tiennent compte de la moyenne mobile des trois derniers mois, a déjà souligné l'économiste à la direction régionale d'Emploi Québec, Jacques Chapdelaine. Une façon de compenser le faible échantillonnage des 278 ménages lavallois recensés chaque mois.
  5. Baisse de la population active: des économistes sonnent l'alarme Publié le 22 juillet 2009 à 15h52 | Mis à jour à 15h55 La Presse Canadienne À défaut d'une croissance de sa force de travail, le Québec s'expose à de graves conséquences préviennent des économistes de Desjardins. Si les récentes données de l'Institut de la statistique du Québec (ISQ) et de Statistique Canada prévoient que l'augmentation des taux de natalité et d'immigration vont freiner le déclin de la population québécoise d'ici 2056, les économistes de Desjardins constatent tout de même une baisse de la population active au même moment que le vieillissement de la population s'accentue. En entrevue à La Presse Canadienne mercredi, l'économiste Hendrix Vachon a rappelé que le déclin de la population des 15 à 64 ans devrait s'amorcer dès 2014 et se poursuivre au cours de la décennie suivante. Si rien n'est fait, Desjardins prévoit une diminution de la population active au Québec de 0,1 pour cent à 0,4 pour cent de 2014 à 2021. Les entreprises québécoises devront donc modifier leur façon de faire si elles désirent maintenir leur niveau de productivité d'ici 2021. Mais relever la productivité avec la même quantité de ressources, voire moins de travailleurs, n'est pas une tâche facile. À défaut de pouvoir augmenter la force de travail, les entreprises québécoises devraient notamment investir davantage dans de meilleures technologies, plus performantes, afin de pouvoir augmenter leur productivité, indique M. Vachon. Au cours des dernières années, le Québec a enregistré une hausse moyenne de sa productivité de travail d'environ 1 pour cent par année. Selon les nouvelles prévisions de Desjardins, les gains de productivité nécessaires au maintien d'une croissance du PIB potentiel sont de 2 pour cent d'ici 2021 M. Vachon propose donc à court terme de solliciter un plus grand nombre de travailleurs à se joindre à la population active ou à demeurer sur le marché du travail plus longtemps. Sinon, prévient-il, les problèmes et les défis à relever d'ici les 15 prochaines années vont demeurés entiers.

Quelque 977 300 Montréalais travaillaient, soit 1000 de plus qu’en novembre 2013 et 8400 de plus qu’en octobre 2013. «Cette performance est cependant légèrement atténuée par une perte de 4300 postes à temps plein en un mois, alors que 5900 emplois à temps partiel ont été créés», mentionne le bulletin Enquête sur la population active du mois de décembre 2013 de Montréal en statistiques. <aside class="stat-highlight" style="border-style: solid; border-color: rgb(218, 218, 218); border-width: 1px 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; padding: 10px 0px;"> 18 500 On compte 18 500 emplois de plus sur l'Île-de-Montréal en décembre 2013 que douze mois plus tôt. </aside>Le taux de chômage à Montréal a également fait un bond d’un dixième de point en décembre, pour grimper à 9,1%. «L’arrivée de personnes additionnelles au sein de la population active a fait sentir sont impact sur le taux de chômage», explique Montréal en statistique. La population active est effectivement composée de 2600 individus de plus qu’en novembre 2013, avec maintenant 1 075 200 Montréalais en emploi ou à la recherche d’emploi, «soit un record de tous les temps». Le taux de chômage à Montréal en décembre affiche tout de même une baisse de 0,9 point si on le compare aux données de décembre 2012, où il était de 10%.</article>

  12. Walk this way Michelle Kay, Yahoo! Canada News - Fri May 28, 4:01 PM The top-five cities -- Vancouver, Victoria, Montreal, Toronto and Halifax -- have high population densities, which affect how people interact with space and urban planning, he said. The magazine gathered its information through a number of sources, including StatsCan and individual city statistics and then developed a 12-point questionnaire on topics such as the percentage of people who walk to work, park areas, vehicle use, etc. The information was presented to a panel of judges -- author, broadcaster and director of Jane's Walks, Jane Farrow, Guillermo Penalosa, consultant, planner and executive director of the non-profit 8 ? 80 Cities, and sustainability professional Amanda Mitchell. Up! discovered a city with a higher population density embraced a visitor-centric approach when it came to urban planning. The more walkable a city, the more livable it was for its citizens (and easier for tourists to navigate). It comes as no surprise that Vancouver came out on top (see below for the complete list). The city has a number of factors in its favour, from its population density (about 5,000 people per square kilometre), pleasant climate to expansive parkland. Nearly 40 per cent of downtown residents walk to work and it's easy to see why. Vancouver is packed with attractive streetscapes and a progressive street pattern with many maps that help pedestrians find their bearings, Gierasimczuk said. The city provides ample opportunities for its inhabitants and tourists to be active. "It's got this mystique. It has built a reputation as this walkable, active, car-free paradise," he said. A walkable place means a city respects its inhabitants enough to want to provide a manageable and livable space. "All these factors that make a city walkable means that a city celebrates its citizens," Gierasimczuk said. Walking is also one of the simplest, cheapest and healthiest ways to get around. Not only is walking a great way to shed the pounds, it doesn't cost anything to use our own two feet. More often than not, when you go for a walk you discover something new. You notice things you normally wouldn't see from the vantage point of a car or even a bicycle, since walking is an activity that forces you to slow down, breathe, look around and take things in. Now, who wants to go for a stroll? Canada's Most Walkable Cities 2010 1. Vancouver 2. Victoria 3. Montreal 4. Toronto 5. Halifax 6. Quebec City 7. Ottawa 8. Calgary 9. St. John's 10.

  14. Les trois principaux indicateurs du marché du travail placent Laval aux 2e, 3e et 4e rangs parmi les 16 régions économiques du Québec. Sujets : Laval Selon l’enquête mensuelle sur la population active (EPA) de Statistique Canada, Laval occupait, en juin, le second rang du classement des régions avec un taux d’emploi de 64,4 %, derrière Chaudière-Appalaches. Le taux d’emploi correspond au pourcentage de la population des 15 ans et plus au travail au moment de l’enquête. Par ailleurs, la ville-région a pris le 3e rang du taux d’activité, alors que 69,2 % de sa population des 15 ans et plus était soit au travail ou en recherche active d'emploi au moment du dernier coup de sonde. Chaudière-Appalaches trône également au sommet de son classement, suivi de la région de l’Outaouais. Enfin, Laval arrive au 4e échelon au chapitre du taux de chômage avec une marque de 6,3 %, derrière Québec, le Centre du Québec et Chaudière-Appalaches. Ces résultats tirés de l’EPA tiennent compte des données de moyennes mobiles de trois mois se terminant en juin. Aux fins de comparaison, précisons que la région métropolitaine de Montréal a présenté pour la même période des taux d’emploi, d’activité et de chômage respectifs de 62,4 %, 68 % et de 8,3 %, alors que l’ensemble de la province affichait des taux de 60,7 %, 65,8 % et de 7,8 %. http://www.courrierlaval.com/Economie/Emploi/2010-07-22/article-1601998/Le-marche-du-travail-se-porte-bien-a-Laval/1
