The STM has implemented three programs for asset maintenance and development of the metro network.
The Réno-Systèmes program’s objective is to replace and refurbish the metro’s fixed equipment that has reached or exceeded its lifecycle. With a budget of $800 million, the program is in
its fifth phase. During 2022, five out of eight rectifier planned
stations were completed, the contract for replacing statomagnetic logic elements and mechanisms was awarded and two
calls of tenders have been launched.
The Réno-Infrastructures program was set up to intervene
preventively on all infrastructures. The program is in its third
phase with a budget of $500 million and will allow the repair of
several metro network infrastructures to maintain the integrity
of the facilities.
During 2022, construction work has progressed to allow the
complete repair of the waterproofing membrane of the roof of
the McGill station, the rehabilitation of three station entrances
as well as the construction of a new entrance between two highrise buildings required for the installation of the two elevators
at this station.
The Metro Accessibility program is directly devoted to the
development of the level of service and improving the customer experience in terms of universal accessibility by integrating
elevators into stations that already exist and are in operation, as
well as the integration of new pieces of art in those stations. The
first phase of this program targets 12 stations.

Since 1994, this hydroelectric station has been undergoing
gradual renovations and replacement of its generation units.
The plant was powered by the Beauharnois Canal, which had
been newly dredged and expanded to one kilometre in width
for that purpose. At the time of its construction, it was considered to be the largest hydroelectric station in Canada. Today,
at 1,900 MW, it is still one of the largest run-of-river plants in
The current project also includes restoration of the station’s
historic art deco architecture, which led it to be designated as
a National Historic Site. Renovations continue, and work is expected to be completed in 2022, with the last of six generating
units undergoing performance optimization.

Substantial Completion: 2024
The Macdonald Block Complex is the hub for administrative services for the Government of Ontario. The complex
consists of five buildings, including four office towers,
with a total of approximately 1.7 million square feet. Each
building in the complex will be taken back to its original
building core, remediated, and rebuilt using modern technologies, systems and materials while preserving the integrity of its many heritage features. The newly reconstructed
complex will meet current building, health, safety, and
accessibility standards and will accommodate significantly
more employees through more efficient use of this government-owned office space.
