Abstract

Following a recent advisory on a policy to control environmental noise, the government of Quebec launched five research projects since 2018.  With founding from the healthcare and from the environment ministries, academic researchers were asked to explore various aspects of noise assessment to stimulate governmental reflections in the province.  Different topics include sound mapping as an evaluation tool, sound insulation of the building envelope and exposure values that would be considered in the interpretation of annoyance disturbing people.  The Department of Geomatics Sciences and the School of Architecture from Laval University are involved in those projects.  As part of the consultation process and aiming to collect various inputs from the professional community, the whole team is looking for significant comments before being able to make suggestions on how to improve noise management with appropriate justification.
