THE OLD MONTRÉAL LIGHTING PLAN

Once you come to Montréal, prepare for a real eye-full. The Old Montréal Lighting Plan, a joint investment by the City of Montréal and the Quebec Department of Culture and Communications, is a true delight.




One of the great success stories of the Old Montréal Lighting Plan is the Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours Chapel, Quebec winner of the award for the best architectural and prestige lighting from the IES (Illuminating Engineering Society ), an international group of experts and firms specializing in the illumination of buildings and public spaces.
