The HUB is located at the intersection of Montreal Road and Marier Avenue, right in the heart of Vanier and in the centre of the Montreal Road revitalization project. The ultimate vision for Montreal Road is to create a vibrant and welcoming main street with a well-balanced transportation network that will allow both residents and businesses to thrive. The Vanier HUB is one example of the many offerings that is already making this vision come to life.
