Saint-Laurent info

Following the freezing rain that pummelled Quebec yesterday, all of Saint-Laurent’s teams have been fully mobilized to clear the streets and sidewalks.

Ice Storm 2023

Saint-Laurent’s administration wishes to remind the public to use caution, for example, by not touching tree branches that could be in contact with electrical wires.

Who to call? 

A reminder of the telephone numbers to call for the following situations:

  • 311 for tree branches on the public thoroughfare (street or sidewalk) or other non-urgent requests,
  • 911 for tree branches that are touching electrical wires, broken wires or other urgent requests.

“Conseil de Saint-Laurent and our teams commiserate with the people of Saint-Laurent as many of them experience these difficult times. Our teams are working tirelessly to clear traffic lanes and sidewalks. We are also working closely with our partners who are entrusted with restoring electricity. In the meantime, we ask that people be cautious and avoid non-essential travel. Like during the pandemic, we are certain that our community will remain united and demonstrate the resilience needed to rise to this new challenge brought to us by Mother Nature.” – Alan DeSousa, the Mayor of Saint-Laurent.


Municipal buildings 

The municipal buildings are closed due to the holiday.

Bibliothèque du Vieux-Saint-Laurent and Bibliothèque du Boisé may however open on Saturday, April 8, depending on the progress of the electricity restoration. Feel free to visit to stay informed.

Teams dispatched 

Since Thursday, April 6, in the morning, all the Travaux publics de Saint-Laurent teams were dispatched: 

  • 8 teams of workers to collect branches
  • 2 teams of horticulturalists
  • 6 teams of tree-trimmers working with Hydro-Québec teams
  • 1 team to shred branches

On Friday, April 7, several additional teams will be at work:

  • 4 teams of tree-trimmers including 3 with pods
  • 15 teams of support workers to continue to secure the streets and sidewalks

Carbon monoxide warning

Please also note that to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, it is important to never use outdoor appliances indoors that are fuelled by a combustible gas such as oil, gas, wood, fuel, coal or propane. As a reminder, carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless and invisible toxic gas. Poisoning can cause irreversible damage or even death. Only use outdoor appliances outdoors.

It is also recommended that the parks be avoided to give the teams the time they need for any necessary interventions.


Saint-Laurent invites its residents to stay updated on its communication platforms for the latest information:
