Contaminated lots

The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion maintains a list of contaminated properties on its territory.

Distribution of a list of contaminated lots

The owner of a contaminated property is required, under sections 31.58 and 31.59 of the Environment Quality Act (CQLR, c. Q-2) (EQA), to forward to the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC) proof of publication of a notice of contamination of the property in the Land Register of Quebec. Upon receipt of the document, the MELCC must send a copy to the City where the lot is located.

In accordance with the notices received by the MELCC, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion publishes a list of contaminated properties located on its territory. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and that a lot is not necessarily considered free of contamination simply because it does not appear on the list. We suggest that you check the Land Register of Quebec before proceeding with any real estate transaction. The MELCC also maintains a directory of contaminated sites, which can be found on its Web site. We recommend you consult this directory to complete your research.

Note: Lot numbers and civic numbers correspond to the information contained in the documents received by the City. There may be several civic numbers associated with a given lot and these may change over time. It is therefore suggested that you use lot numbers, including cadastral operations, as the primary search tool and not rely solely on civic numbers.

Quebec Land Register notice

There are three types of notices that provide information on the environmental quality of lots: land: contamination notices, decontamination notices and restriction of use notices. The notice numbers are available to citizens via the list of contaminated properties available on our Web site. To obtain a copy of the notice, you must consult the Quebec Land Registry.
