City hall has been closed to the public since May 2019. The building will undergo a heritage restoration and major work aimed at bringing it up to standard, modernizing it and ensuring that it is better adapted to democratic life.

The Lucien Saulnier building in the heart of Old Montréal is the new City Hall. Major renovations to the former City Hall requires that municipal headquarters be relocated next door, where te City Council now meets.
