The Ville de Mont-Tremblant has announced that the Police Department will work in partnership to ensure control of road access to its territory.

Control posts are deployed by the Police Department of the Ville de Mont-Tremblant (SPVMT) at territorial boundaries and within the borders of the town. In this way the SPMVT will support the efforts of the Sûreté du Québec (the provincial police), which is controlling road travel throughout the territory of the Laurentians.

The collaboration of the SPVMT will allow an increase in the frequency of the control actions undertaken and the amount of control points throughout the Laurentians.

“In the current context, controlling access to our town is an excellent step to take in order to reduce the risk of spreading the disease and to protect our citizens. The government decree will help us in our efforts to reduce non-essential trips to Mont-Tremblant. It was obvious that we should provide our assistance to support the government and the provincial police, thereby increasing the effectiveness of the control posts. We salute the leadership of Premier Legault and promise him our full cooperation,” stated Mayor Luc Brisebois.

This step aims to limit non-essential travel to curb the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with the directives from the Direction de la santé publique – the provincial public health department.

Residents of the MRC des Laurentides who wish to pick up supplies in Mont-Tremblant may do so, identifying themselves using ID documentation.

Travel restrictions are not directed at activities permitting people to obtain and provide health care and services, nor at those that ensure humanitarian support and services essential to the continuity of the supply chain to all parts of Québec.

Please remember that everyone has been asked to avoid travel from one region to another, or from one town or city to another, except in cases of necessity.

All are urged to travel only for medical reasons and for work, in a context where telework is not possible.
