Erratum : Vegetation control work

The city of Saint-Lazare and Hydro-Québec collaborate to improve the quality of electricity service

Please note that there has been a mistake in the invitation letter sent by mail to all residents. Under the signature of Mayor Robert Grimaudo, one should read Mayor of the Town of Saint-Lazare and not, Hydro-Québec. We confirm that Mr. Grimaudo is the Mayor of the Town of Saint-Lazare, and has no connection with Hydro-Québec.


Information session - Vegetation control work in Saint-Lazare - April 6, 2017

The city of Saint-Lazare and Hydro-Québec collaborate to improve the quality of electricity service


Over the next two years, Hydro-Québec will be conducting major vegetation control work in Saint-Lazare.

Most major power outages in the area over the past few years have been caused by vegetation coming into contact with the power system. Also, weather events—which are increasingly numerous and severe—have a direct impact on the number of outages and service restoration times. The denser the vegetation and the closer it is to the power system, the more challenging it becomes for Hydro-Québec crews to intervene.

In an effort to make the electrical system less vulnerable and ensure public safety, Hydro-Québec, with the support of the city of Saint-Lazare, will undertake a special vegetation control project to prune or cut down weakened trees and vegetation growing too close to the electrical system.

Before cutting down the trees that have been identified, Hydro-Québec must obtain permission from the affected landowners. Over the next few months, a Hydro-Québec forestry technician will therefore contact the property owners as part of the project operations. Once all the required permissions are granted, the technician will obtain a municipal tree-felling permit from the city of Saint-Lazare’s urban planning department.

To present the project and respond to your questions, we are inviting the citizens of Saint-Lazare to an information session:


April 6, 2017

7 p.m.

  Parc nature les Forestiers-de-Saint-Lazare  (Salle Les Forestiers)
2800, chemin Lotbinière

We are counting on your collaboration to ensure the success of this special project, so that the citizens of Saint-Lazare can benefit from improved service in the years to come. Our collective effort is critical to the attainment of this objective.


Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.


Yours truly,

Robert Grimaudo                             Yves Desrochers
