A brief description of the organic landscape management program:

The City of Montreal has its own regulation that prohibits the use of pesticides on the whole island of Montreal (of which the City itself is a part), except in some few cases where institutions or citizens have sustained important damages.

Otherwise, the city prohibits all kinds of chemical pesticides and the Université de Montréal upholds and complies with the regulation.

Additionally, no fertilizer are use on the university managed ground except for few on-campus permacole gardens (using only natural fertilizers).
