Brief history of Montreal noise-bylaws and their enforcement
The City of Montreal noise by-laws, in their current state, can be traced directly to the "Règlement sur le bruit - No 4996”, first enforced in 1976, following the pioneering research and field work of Jean-Gabriel Migneron on urban acoustics. From the first City by-laws concerning public peace and order in 1865 to the latest noise by-laws modifications that differ from borough to borough, this talk traces the development and evolution of the noise-bylaws in Canada's second largest city. It provides an historical background, highlighting administrative decisions, municipal efforts (committees and public consultations) and publications that shaped or have attempted to shape the current regulations and their enforcement in an effort to modernize them.
