The days of disposable pavilions are over. For Expo 17, advanced modular planning will ensure that every structure and pavilion finds a good home afterwards. Some will stay in Montreal, while others will be carefully dismantled and erected elsewhere. For example, a pavilion might be converted into a medical clinic for a remote region, or become a community centre in a developing nation.
On a regional scale, Montreal will serve as a model of urban renewal, modern mass transportation, and environmental responsibility.
On a national scale, initiatives undertaken for our Sesquicentennial will strengthen national unity, promote Canadian culture and technology, and advance social and environmental sustainability.
On a global scale, Canada will be regarded as an inclusive and innovative nation, a caring people and an active guardian of the planet.
