Prohibition of Certain Plastic Bags

At the sitting held on September 10, 2018, the City Council of the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue adopted by-law number 806 to prohibit the distribution of certain shopping bags in businesses throughout its territory. The purpose of this measure is to encourage a change in behavior with respect to the use of this type of bag and thus reduce the environmental impact.

According to by-law 806, it is no longer allowed to distribute certain shopping bags made of conventional, oxo-degradable or biodegradable plastic in retail businesses located on the territory of the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

Awareness Campaign "I'm doing my part"

Starting today, we invite you to shop with a reusable bag!


A Birth, A Tree Program

The City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue is proud to welcome the arrival of a child by offering a tree to his/her family. This program is for families residing in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue who have adopted or given birth to a child in the last year.

By accepting this gift, new parents contribute to the history of the community, in addition to beautifying our living environment and providing a healthier environment for future generations.

The tree will be planted on the family’s property or in a public place within the city.  

The "One Birth, One Tree" program helps improve the quality of life in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue in the same way as the “One Birth, One Book” program.

How to request it?

If you have adopted or given birth to a child this year and would like to receive a tree in commemoration, please fill out this form and return it:

In person: City Hall - 109 Rue Sainte-Anne
