The mission of the Old Port of Montreal Corporation is to manage, develop, and hold activities on a large urban Site dedicated to recreation, tourism and culture, a place for fun and discovery. Within this context, the OPMC provides its millions of visitors with event programming and commercial services that may affect the noise environment.
With a view to pursuing its mission while taking into consideration the tourist and residential vocation of the historic Old Port neighbourhood, the OPMC had adopted a Noise Management Policy that defines standards and criteria for events and merchants, and other enterprises that affect the noise environment at the Old Port and its surroundings.
This policy applies to the following :
The acceptable sound level during unique outdoor events, including sound-checks, is 80 decibels (dB(A)) between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., unless prior authorization to the contrary is obtained from the OPMC.
The acceptable sound level produced by merchants (including terraces) is 80 decibels (db(A)) inside the building and on the outdoor terrace or respecting the perceptible limit within the territory of the OPMC.
The Old Port of Montreal Corporation is a member of the Table de concertation du Vieux-Montréal, along with representatives of the Association des commerçants and residents of the neighbourhood. The OPMC works with the Permits and inspections division of the Borough of Ville-Marie to ensure that noise regulations are observed. The OPMC agrees to notify them of its event scheduling and its commercial activities in order to keep the work groups informed of OPMC activities that may affect the noise environment for visitors and residents.
The Old Port of Montreal Corporation is certified “Qualité Tourisme” by the Bureau de normalisation du Québec, and makes every possible effort to providing an unparalleled tourist experience for its visitors while respecting its external environment.
