	BACKGROUND
The Ville de Châteauguay acquired Manoir D’Youville, a manor house, from the Grey Nuns in
2011 to promote the collective heritage and benefit the people of Châteauguay.
From 2011 to 2013, the management of the Manoir D’Youville’s operations was entrusted
to Héritage Saint-Bernard, which is primarily in charge of managing the Refuge faunique
Marguerite D’Youville, the Centre écologique Fernand-Séguin, the Ruisseau Saint-Jean and
the Parc de la commune, as well as the Île Saint-Bernard pavilion.
In fall 2012, the Ville de Châteauguay administration began discussions with the Fondation
Compagnom resulting in having it take over the management and development of the
Manoir D’Youville, a manor house. This proposal, which was aimed at leveraging the
expertise of Serge Choinière, Foundation president and a recognized expert in tourism and
the hotel industry, to make the Manoir a site for the Foundation’s charitable activities, was
finalized in spring 2013.
The mission of Fondation Compagnom, a non-profit social economy organization, consists
primarily in offering respite care for people with mental health problems and their
caregivers. This mission is a historical continuation of the charitable activities of the Grey
Nuns who built the Manoir.

•	 	Restrictions included in the 2011 act of purchase.
The Ville de Châteauguay acquired part of Île Saint-Bernard from the Grey Nuns of Montreal,
as well as the buildings and structures erected there, with the commitment to preserve the
current vocation of the site and its natural and cultural attributes.
The Parliament of Quebec in fact decreed that the City may operate accommodations
and a food service establishment in the buildings of which it has acquired ownership by
virtue of the act of purchase published in the registry office of the registration division of
Châteauguay (number 18053650).
In order to exercise this right, the following conditions must be met:
•		The City must retain ownership of all the buildings acquired under the act of purchase
referred to in the above paragraph;
•		The vocation of these buildings as public places, used mainly for cultural, recreational
and community activities, must be maintained;
•		The Ville de Châteauguay may entrust a person with the operation of the buildings.
•		The need to protect the heritage.
•	The compatibility of the main mission, activities and customer base.
	PROPOSAL
	 EVALUATION CRITERIA
The evaluation grid had multiple criteria and was intended to validate whether the project and
the knoll were accessible to citizens, including people with reduced mobility, whether the project
complied with the architectural constraints of the site, whether there was an incentive to stay in
the hotel and whether it was designed to increase the number of visitors to the site.
The grid also focused on measuring a project’s potential impact, its economic and tourism
spinoffs, as well as the needs met and the activities offered.
Contraints
Apart from the evaluation grid used, the Committee members also kept in mind the
various constraints against which ideas or possible projects should be compared affecting
their completion. The constraints taken into account included the following:
•	 	The geographical location of the site, which is somewhat isolated. The
location is difficult to access because:
•		Public transit does not serve the site;
•		The bridge spanning the Châteauguay River has limited width and capacity.
•	 Parking
•		The collective parking lot is often used by the many visitors to Île Saint-Bernard;
•		Parking dedicated exclusively to Manoir D’Youville, Bistro La Traite and events (shows,
apple picking, private celebrations, Écomarché, etc.) and the knoll is limited;
•		Overflows occur during some events;
•		Residents living on neighbouring streets are exasperated by cars sometimes parked on
the street.
•	 	The Manoir’s infrastructure is outdated.
There is asbestos in sections of the walls and the dual energy (heating oil / electricity)
heating system could be more efficient.
	CONSULTATION
Over 30 residents took advantage of this invitation to submit their ideas, opinions and
projects, either on their own behalf or on behalf of an organization from the cultural, social,
community, business or health sectors.

AVIF Châteauguay
Action sur la Violence et Intervention Familiale (AVIF) is a non-profit organization that offers
an individual and group intervention program for men and adolescents from ages 12 to 20
who want to overcome their controlling and violent behaviour.
The AVIF team acts as a spokesperson for community organizations. It would like to use part
of the Manoir to allow community organizations to share offices, provided that organizations
are chosen that have common customers. It has asked about the possibility of using public
transportation so that customers can come to the Manoir. The organizations would pay rent
to the Manoir to lease the space, according to a rate grid.
Evaluation
The Committee approves the request because it complies with the Manoir d’Youville’s
current operations and many activities could be carried out there. The Committee
considers that many organizations share the same challenges as AVIF Châteauguay and that
a portion of the Manoir could be dedicated to those activities.
	PROJECTS
	SUBMITTED
Association des Arts Visuels du Grand
Châteauguay (AAGVC)
Community organization dedicated to culture
The Association d’Arts Visuels du Grand Châteauguay has been active since 2000.
Depending on the year, it has between 65 and 80 members: local painters, photographers,
sculptors and glassmakers, whether professional or non-professional. The main goal of the
Association is to support artists in their careers and in the creation of original works and to
give them a platform to exhibit their work. It also aims to raise awareness of the visual arts
among the regional population.
Villa Marguerite: Rooms and exhibition
hall with reception counter
The Association plans to hire professional artists to give courses to its members: workshops
in watercolours, light therapy (with fused glass), sculpture, stained glass, etc., as well as
relaxation times and specific activities with the elderly. The Association has about 50 artists
who could stay at the Manoir at a reduced rate for a duration that would depend on the
different activities. The idea is to turn Villa Marguerite into an exhibition hall with a reception
counter to welcome customers. To do so, the Association will need Villa Marguerite, which
will serve as a permanent office, as well as an exhibition hall. It will hire professional artists
who could give courses to the members and the public.
The Association suggests that the various organizations be met by the Committee in order
to find out what their respective space needs are.
Evaluation
This project is well aligned with the site and the overall vision for it. It is complementary to
current hotel operations and to a potential interpretation centre.

Camp musical de Châteauguay
The musical camp is a non-profit cultural organization that has existed since 2015 and is
focused on music through musical promotion, dissemination and learning.
Manoir
The Camp musical de Châteauguay aims to offer three sessions of five days of musical
training to young musicians and singers from ages 6 to 17 in the Montérégie West region,
which must currently go to another region to obtain a similar service.
Those who are most advanced and already seriously learning their instrument will find
interesting training opportunities there. Beginners will enjoy learning an instrument and
singing in a choir, and will make many musical discoveries.
In addition to classes on their instrument, participants will be offered various musical
workshops, such as choir singing, percussion instruments and the history of music, as
well as sports, recreational and cultural activities, including pool, beach, sailing, canoeing,
circus, ecology, archeology and history workshops.
The project has attracted the attention of numerous artists, including opera singer
Marie-Josée Lord, who has agreed to act as the spokesperson for the Camp musical de
Châteauguay and possibly as a voice teacher.
This project, which is now offered exclusively in the Eastern Townships and Laurentians
regions, could be eligible for attractive government grants.
In addition, the people in charge of the camp have compared their services to those of
other camps in Quebec to make sure that they are competitive. They have also prepared
implementation and marketing strategies to publicize their project.
They have even a developed a sample schedule that would apply to some 150 young people
registered every year, after a start-up year with 90 registrations. This schedule also includes
shows presented to the public.
Specific needs:
•		One large room for meetings and group classes;
•		10 to 15 small rooms for private and semi-private classes and personal practice space;
•		Space for outdoor activities;
•		Cafeteria for lunches and snacks.
Evaluation
This project provides an opportunity for financial benefits in addition to being
complementary to current activities. Carried out in an ad hoc manner, it should be easy to
include it in the Manoir’s events calendar.
14 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Cercle des fermières
Saint-Jean-Baptiste-Marie-Viennay
Owing to their activities and the various charities they support, the Cercles de Fermières
du Québec contribute to improving the living conditions of women and families, as well as
to the preservation and transmission of our cultural and craft heritage.
Manoir
Many projects are used to transfer their knowledge and save various types of heritage.
The members, consisting of 55 women aged 55 or over, aim to break seniors’ solitude and
isolation, and to welcome and share information with new immigrants, help them develop a
sense of belonging, provide a place for young retirees and encourage volunteering.
Members would like the City to provide space, either in a city building or seniors’ residence.
The church building where they meet will not always be available and, according to them,
they need to think about the future. They are looking for a space to house their weaving
loom in order to mitigate the difficulties experienced in their current premises that are
shared with the other activities offered.
Evaluation
This project blends in well with the site and its proposed vision. It is complementary to the
current activities of the hotel industry and also to a potential interpretation centre.
Centre multifonctionnel Horizon
The Centre multifonctionnel Horizon is a community organization for persons with a
physical or intellectual disability or an autism spectrum disorder. The organization offers
day activities during the week for adults over age 18, to allow work-family balance and a
respite care service.
Manoir
The Centre Horizon sees a development opportunity to double its area at the Manoir. In
partnership with the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux with regard to staff, it
hopes to extend its respite service for short- and long-term stays to not only meet a need,
but also to have a direct impact on it.
Under the heading of a second home, the Centre Horizon offers persons with disabilities
and their families a place of special and adapted growth and social development, providing
parents with significant support. There is a huge need for this type of resource.
Evaluation
The Committee believes that the commitment of the Ville de Châteauguay and the hotel
should be long term. The transformation of a wing of the hotel will lead to considerable
investment and many adjustments to the site infrastructure, which should be analyzed by
professionals in the event that this type of project moves forward. With a view to bringing
the need for space back as a priority, partnerships could be entered into between the
Manoir and the Centre multifonctionnel Horizon.
In addition, the potential mix of the hotel’s customers (medical, tourism and hotel) remains
an unknown factor that will require some skill in the subsequent management of the site’s
use.
Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 15
Clinique Spa
Marilène Côté has lived in Châteauguay since she was born. She is an acupuncturist and has
owned her clinic in Châteauguay for 13 years. She practises medical Qigong and is currently
studying this approach to traditional Chinese medicine leading to a doctorate in medical
Qigong.
Manoir and outdoor environment
Ms. Côté would like to create a therapy centre on the site, which would bring together a
number of local professionals. The projected clinical centre would require the creation of 15
to 20 treatment rooms to allow close co-operation between various holistic therapists with
western-style therapists. Treatment rooms such as hyperbaric chamber, oxygen bar and light
therapy would also be created to expand the range of services. These facilities, in wing A, would
make it possible to combine the view that the customers would have on a country setting with
possible access to the roofs of the dining room and the old mill. Wing C could be used for
the bathrooms, showers and changing rooms, as well as for the break room, which would be
refurbished in the old chapel. There would be different areas for relaxation, either lying down
or meditation, which could also be used for Qigong, Tai Qi and Yoga sessions.
In the room located above the room in the old mill, access to the outside would allow the
development of a terrace area for steam and dry saunas. Customers using the saunas would
benefit from the panorama visible through bay windows.
A polar wall is planned near the lawn facing the orchard while, a few feet away, heading to the
old mill, a large spa, or many moveable spas, could serve customers. The project provides for
the possibility of developing a second phase by adding other spas and saunas in the middle of
the courtyard, including a sports swimming spa and relaxation and warmth areas with healthy
plant landscaping.
A terrace area will be developed on the roof of the current dining room. In addition to a terrace,
this space will be used as a garden for medicinal plants and edible flowers, and it will have a
splendid view of the orchard.
All of the Manoir divisions contain asbestos which would require an expensive decontamination
in the event of changes to the current divisions. Consequently, the planned project allows the
use of all the walls in their current state.
Evaluation
This project does not limit access to the knoll. It represents a complementary offer that
harmonizes with potential activities on the site and which is susceptible to attracting and
diversifying customers. The hotel portion would be slightly reduced. The project is slightly
intrusive—in that the clinical portion uses the existing rooms of the Manoir—in relation to
the landscape.
16 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Jardins-Roussillon User Committee
The user committee is an independent organization, resulting from the application of the
Quebec Act respecting Health Services and Social Services. Its goal is to protect health
care patient rights.
•		Inform users of their rights and obligations;
•		Promote the improvement of the quality of the living conditions of users and evaluate
their degree of satisfaction;
•		Defend users’ rights and collective interests;
•		Guide and assist users, on request, in any steps they take, including complaints;
•		Ensure the proper functioning of the three residents’ committees.
Manoir
A bolstered front-line service for urgent needs will be open 7 days a week and 12 hours
a day, thus reducing long wait times at the Anna-Laberge hospital. The user committee
intends to use the entire ground floor for the super clinic.
Evaluation
Many issues were raised related to this project, particularly the presence of asbestos in
the Manoir walls. In addition, the Manoir d’Youville is currently a peaceful place and this
tranquility will be considerably disturbed by the noise of ambulances and all the movement
on the site. The new infrastructure configuration would prohibit the hotel vocation and the
accessibility to the island would have to be completely rethought. In addition, the hotel’s
customer mix (medical, tourism and hotel) remains an unknown factor that requires some
skill in the subsequent management of the site’s use.
Église verte de Saint-Joachim Committee
Religious Committee with an environmental character
The Réseau des Églises vertes assists Christian communities in Canada in raising
environmental awareness. The projects carried out by the Saint-Joachim Committee
aim to promote an ecological lifestyle and to build ties between parishioners who share a
common goal, namely that of building a better future for future generations.
Villa Marguerite: Archaeology exhibition
As the Villa has been used as accommodations for archaeologists, it might be interesting
to transform the site into a museum. If research is to continue, this museum would be
enriched over the years and become a tourist attraction to complement the Pointe-du-
Buisson museum in Beauharnois (Melocheville).
Manoir
Proposals :
•		Meeting rooms / boardrooms;
•		Camps for spring break with lodging for families (in co-operation with Héritage Saint-
Bernard);
•		Yoga, Tai-Chi and meditation camps;
•		Retreat for nuns for rest or a convalescence home;
•		Diocesan retreats in partnership with the Saint-Joachim parish for the sacred portion;
•		Promotion of the location for shooting films;
•		Possible collaboration with Kahnawake due to traces of Indigenous people on the Manoir
site (trading post / interpretation centre).
Any use should maintain the vocation of the site, namely a nature park for Châteauguay
residents, in compliance with the original agreement with the Sisters of Charity (Grey Nuns).
Evaluation
The Committee believes that the project is noteworthy, especially the collaborative aspect
with Kahnawake. This project blends in well with the location and the related vision. It
complements the current hotel activities and is also a potential interpretation centre.
Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 17
Fédération de l’Âge d’Or du Québec
(FADOQ) Saint-Joachim de Châteauguay
FADOQ Saint-Joachim de Châteauguay is a local community organization that, together
with the FADOQ network in Quebec, brings together and represents people who are 50
years old and over in order to maintain and improve their quality of life. It defends and
promotes their collective rights, highlights their contribution to society and supports them
through programs, services and activities, particularly involving recreation, culture, sport
and the outdoors.
Vieux-Manoir and Villa Marguerite
The 1,970 members of the FADOQ Saint-Joachim Club would like the Manoir to make room
for persons who need palliative care, including seniors. The development of the Vieux
Manoir portion of Villa Marguerite is the ideal place for palliative care ensuring a good quality
of life on which the organization is working. FADOQ will not sponsor the project; it only
submits the idea.
Evaluation
This project is not easily compatible with a hotel vocation.
ESPACE Châteauguay
Since 1985, the ESPACE organizations have been working to ensure that more and more
children in Quebec can live their childhood in safety and without violence. Preventing
violence means to give children the means to protect themselves against all forms of
aggression, but also, significantly, to make adults aware of their role in prevention and equip
them to assist children.
Manoir
ESPACE Châteauguay has expressed an interest in occupying part of the Manoir D’Youville
for its offices. According to the organization, many community organizations could group
together and be housed there, making it a peaceful place that is appropriate for the various
activities that each organization may need to organize. This idea is intended to be an
evaluation of the possibility to occupy larger spaces and maximize partnership possibilities
with other local community organizations.
Evaluation
The Committee looks favourably on the request since it agrees with current activities of the
Manoir d’Youville and a good number of activities could take place there.
With a view to ensuring that the need for a room comes back to the forefront of community
organizations’ concerns, partnerships could be established between the Manoir and them.
In addition, the potential mix of customers remains an unknown factor that requires some
skill in the subsequent management of the site’s use.
18 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Fondation Compagnom
Fondation Compagnom is a social economy business possessing recognized expertise in
tourism, hotel and restauration management, whose main mission is to promote better
mental health in the population through the implementation of various initiatives from a
prevention viewpoint. The Foundation has been the manager of the entire Manoir D’Youville
site since 2013.
Vision du site
A hotel that distinguishes itself by a clear positioning centered around wellness and that
adds a professional and popular training component, an establishment that integrates
facilities and activities dedicated to increased use by the population of Châteauguay and
its community organizations.
The project primarily consists in pursuing and consolidating the hotel vocation by improving
the offer available in the Manoir by upgrading the rooms and common areas (reception
rooms, corridors, etc.), while maintaining the current configuration of the rooms overall to
minimize the investment.
A concept that:
•		Is aimed at profitability, both financial and social;
•		Wants to make the public proud of the Manoir;
•		Is based on a realistic and rigorous approach to management;
•		Is inspired by Compagnom’s expertise and knowledge.
This positioning involves four components:
•		Hotel business: wellness and religious tourism;
•		Public use;
•		Kitchen training;
•		Heritage and artistic expression.
Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 19
The Vieux-Manoir
The concept is based on that of a wellness centre in a separate hotel establishment,
characterized by a variety of physical and mental resourcing activities (conferences,
workshops, health food, relaxation, meditation, prayer, yoga, silence and care).
The Vieux-Manoir will be renovated to allow various health professionals (physiotherapists,
acupuncturists and psychologists) to have offices developed on an ad hoc or regular basis.
The building would become a health care and wellness centre that would include spas.
Simultaneously, the Manoir will design, organize and commercialize a series of
complementary activities intended for day customers, but which will also be available to
Châteauguay residents. This program is intended to promote a greater use of rooms and of
hotel services, but also to add to the City’s services.
The kitchen in the Manoir d’Youville will be transformed into a modern restaurant with an
updated menu focused on vegetarianism. This original restaurant concept will add to the
current supply of restaurants available in Châteauguay and will be accessible to the local
population.
Citizen use | various locations
The population of Châteauguay already uses the Manoir d’Youville throughout the year for
various purposes: municipal or business meetings, room rentals by families or community
organizations, fundraising activities by charitable organizations, citizens for brunches and
theme dinners or meals at the Bistro La Traite.
To add a few thousand users of the Manoir each year, the Compagnom project includes
increased and different aspects for citizen use:
•		The chapel will become a multi-purpose room, a cooperative space at the service of
organizations;
•		Villa Marguerite will become an interpretation centre on ground level and a space for
artistic creation and exhibition on the second floor;
•		The training kitchen to be built would be collective kitchens;
•		Facilitated activities will be offered inside and outside in co-operation with municipal
services: culinary discoveries, mulled wine in winter around braziers, sugar shack theme,
initiation to yoga or walking meditation, stroller workout and baby massage classes.

possibly focused as a priority on immigrants wanting to take specialized training to quickly
integrate into the Quebec labour market.
A training kitchen will be installed and used mainly for school purposes, and cooking
classes for Châteauguay residents. Current kitchens will be used for the practical training
component. Initially, a block of 23 rooms, grouped in wing C on the top floor of the Manoir,
could be used as housing for students. A classroom will be developed for theoretical
courses.
Villa-Marguerite | heritage and artistic expression
Insofar as the City would be willing to make the investments required to preserve and
develop Villa Marguerite, Compagnom will give the building an interpretation centre on the
main floor (prehistory and the island’s history) and a centre of creation and artistic exhibits
on the second floor. This project will be carried out together with the Société muséale du
Grand Châteauguay and the Association d’art visuel du Grand Châteauguay (which both
have submitted projects for this purpose).
Evaluation
The proposed interpretation centre in Villa-Marguerite is an essential project and the
partnership formula is noteworthy and winning.
The spa and care centre project is complementary to the current activities and many future
possibilities that could be developed.
The introduction of a restaurant would fill an important gap in the food supply. However,
the process leading to the approval to open a training school, however reputable, is very
long. The cost-effectiveness of providing such training is also questioned.
The project, taken as a whole, allows for a consolidation of the developments undertaken in
recent years, while at the same time adding components fostering greater citizen use and
a higher tourism supply.

François Le Borgne
Mr. Le Borgne is the municipal councillor of District D’Youville (8). He is also a lecturer at the
faculty of permanent education—in law—at the University of Montreal.
Mr. Le Borgne attended a Committee meeting to promote dome project proposals which
could have added value for the site without leaning in favour of any one of these potential
initiatives.
The projects are as follows:
•	Establish a coworking centre. Coworking aims at self-employed workers, professionals,
small start-ups and medium-to-large businesses in urban centres, but which have
employees living in the suburbs. Coworking is primarily intended to commercialize open
plan office space (many employees) or closed offices (one or two people and some with
3 to 4 people). Shared consultation/meeting premises with or without relaxation/meals
must be planned.
•		Complementary hub similar to a university. The hotel rooms would become small
classrooms, but delocalized by means of videoconferencing (1 screen, 1 wall camera and
1 camera over the central table). These classrooms should accommodate 3 to 6 students.
Also, large classes could be installed in more spacious rooms or by opening up only a few
rooms. Lecture courses could be carried out in the large rooms on ground level.
•		Network of community organizations. Hotel rooms could become small shared offices
(two to four employees). Organizations could use meeting rooms or coworking rooms and
certain resources when they are not needed by coworking collaborators. This creation
of a hub of organizations would reflect what was done on the Montreal Olympic Stadium
site.
•		Convert the chapel into a multipurpose room. The transformation of the chapel would
meet the needs of the training activities for the region (e.g., lectures, shows) and would
be complementary to the events and event-related activities of the Pavilion. This room
could also be used by the City Council or as a place for holding citizen consultations.
•		Create a cooking school in conjunction with ITHQ. This school could be a partnership
with the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ) (Montreal) and/or the
École hôtelière de la Montérégie (Longueuil). A coordination with the planned training hub
(see above) would allow us to benefit from training rooms, particularly videoconferences
which would be useful for exchanges with cooking schools / national or foreign hotels
or with personalities in the field who live elsewhere in Quebec or around the world. This
avenue would meet the demand for gastronomic food in the region.
•		Redesigned accommodations. It is advisable to have accommodations on the island to
meet the needs of two types of customers who have opposite interests and financial
means. Modest-priced accommodations (two stars), which we currently have on the site,
could be limited to the rooms in the remaining hallways. Top quality accommodations
(four stars) could be installed in the Annex (Vieux Manoir). Needless to say, this type of
accommodations would give our city a special tourist showcase.
•	Outdoor pool. It is a matter of renovating the pool and allowing the installation of
an attractive pool (design and pavilion / screen doors) as well as moveable partitions
allowing, from time to time, the opening of the pool area onto Bistrot La Traite. It could be
useful for carrying out lively, festive/corporate and outdoor networking. In normal times,
the pool could be available as a priority to hotel customers and coworking collaborators.
•		Training centre, research and observatory of Indigenous issues. We could add a
hallway with a mix of offices and classrooms. The renovation could be carried out in
compliance with Indigenous values. This centre could coordinate training events, such as
videoconferences with other Indigenous communities or other schools. It would allow a
research and training interface between Indigenous, Quebec and Canadian institutions.
Hotel/cooking training programs according to Indigenous values and traditions could be
planned (subject to receiving substantial grants).
•		A history interpretation centre in Villa Marguerite. The interpretation centre would
contain a permanent exhibit of artefacts showcasing Châteauguay’s French colonial
history, the interaction with our Indigenous neighbours and the way of life of the nuns
who occupied the island for a long time. This activity would be a new tourism showcase.
Other ideas:
•	Bring in Lole so they can give yoga classes;
•		Hold repertory cinema evenings;
•		Install an unloading dock.
Evaluation
Some projects have already been completed (co-working centre) or are in the process
of being completed in Châteauguay (reading docks) and do not provide added value or
need expansion. All of the suggestions could be retained and expanded to align with other
projects that could be developed on the site.
22 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Héritage Saint-Bernard
Héritage Saint-Bernard is a non-profit organization in the environmental field, whose
mission is to protect and promote natural environments and to offer educational and
recreational tourism activities.
The organization has proposed a number of solutions to better develop municipal
equipment for the good of the community and from the point of view of social and
economic profitability.
Villa Marguerite
Musée d’histoire de l’Île Saint-Bernard. If established, a museum could display the many
artefacts found during archeological digs from 2014 to 2018 by the University of Montreal.
Space will be reserved for the sale of regional products and a tourist information desk will
be established with the Ministère du Tourisme. There is also the possibility of opening an
agrifood boutique.
Artistic creation workshops. Some rooms in the building can be transformed to create
artists’ workshops.
Manoir
Wholehealthcentre. This site could provide massage therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture,
osteopathy services. There could also be a spa on the roof of Manoir d’Youville that would
be a unique site in the region. Héritage Saint-Bernard also proposes to develop a number
of packages that would combine activities such as healthy cooking classes, yoga and
meditation classes and a premium food service.
Multipurpose room. Benches could be removed from the Manoir d’Youville’s old chapel to
make a multipurpose room that artists can use to exhibit their work. We could also offer
yoga and tai-chi courses there and much more.
Records and offices. To save the City money because it pays for storage space for its
records, Héritage Saint-Bernard proposes to provide a space on the second floor of the
Manoir for this purpose.
Space for community groups. Héritage Saint-Bernard would like to bring together
community groups in one of the wings of the building to create a synergy between the
various groups and thus combine their administrative expenses and share customers. This
would free the downtown area in order to rent to other organizations and thus recover
taxes.
Vieux-Manoir
Luxury rooms in the Vieux-Manoir. In 2012, Michel Létourneau, architect, submitted
preliminary plans to completely renovate the interior of the Vieux-Manoir by adding 28
luxury rooms. This project is estimated to cost $2.6 M. A market study could be conducted
and possibly grants could be obtained to create it.
Importance of public transportation
Héritage Saint-Bernard would like to use the Beauharnois public transportation system as
a model by offering citizens free service. A similar system would also be cost-effective for
neighbouring cities such as Beauharnois and Mercier. The organization believes, moreover.
that a good project for the site would be the construction of green parking.
Evaluation
Most of the ideas suggested blend well with the site and the related vision; they are
complementary to the current hotel activities and also to a potential interpretation centre.
Luxury rooms would require a significant investment that could be difficult to make
profitable and that would negatively affect the mix and availability. With regard to the
conservation of the municipality’s records, this situation has been resolved and, moreover,
the need for luxury rooms is no longer a hot topic.

Saint-Bernard creates its unique

24 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Société du Musée
du Grand Châteauguay (SMGC)
The Société du Musée du Grand Châteauguay manages Maison LePailleur. Its mission is to
contribute to preserving, enhancing, disseminating and promoting tangible and intangible
heritage in the Greater Châteauguay area, in light of improving access to Quebec history. It
brings together under its supervision the management of buildings on the Maison LePailleur
heritage site and promotes museum activities through the interpretation and enrichment
of the permanent collection.
Manoir
•		Showcase local flavour by involving the population:
Create spaces dedicated to local organizations whose activities and vocation could
benefit the tourist experience.
•		Promote cultural initiatives aimed to enhance the premises:
Implement mechanisms to foster active and creative visitor participation. Provide visitors
with the opportunity to live a unique and extraordinary experience through cultural
history.
•		Call on an interior design professional to beautify the premises and achieve hotel
standard consistency (with a local flavour);
•		Propose different types of accommodations to encourage meetings; attractive dormitory
rooms, capsule rooms, family rooms and business suites;
•		Deliver services meeting the growing need for well-being;
•		Provide separate common spaces, both daytime and nighttime, to improve the vitality of
the premises and encourage exchanges.
Villa Marguerite
The Société du Grand Châteauguay (SMGC) wishes to establish an interpretation centre.
The Ville de Châteauguay has supported the organization for a long time and, over the
years, the SMGC has developed substantial museum expertise. While the Maison LePailleur
already houses a museum, the SMGC believes that the Villa Marguerite could be a place
that is complementary to it in every way, without forgetting, however, the standardization
of museum institutions. The concept of an interpretation centre would therefore be
entirely appropriate for a place that provides quality interpretation (adequate space,
relevant teaching tools, quality visit scenarios), but that has no collection, research policy
or educational program. Co-management of Villa Marguerite could be foreseen between
the Compagnom Foundation and the SMGC, with the support of major partners, notably
the Musée d’archéologie de Roussillon, Héritage Saint-Bernard and the Archives and
Collections of the Sisters of Charity of Montreal.
Evaluation
The Committee believes that the opportunities for partnerships and the content of the
project proposed by the SMCG concerning Villa Marguerite are exceptional and are fully
consistent with the current capabilities of the site and the improvements that could be
made in line with the activities taking place on the site, but also in the region. This project
provides an exceptional showcase for transmitting, showcasing and preserving the history
of the site and the Grey Nuns’ heritage.
Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 25
Yoga et spa de l’île
Melissa Vaillancourt is the project’s driving force; she sees herself as either the owner or
the manager of the site. She is certified by Yoga Sangha and accredited by the International
Yoga Federation. Mélissa Vaillancourt has taught yoga since 2010, including at the Manoir
d’Youville.
Vieux-Manoir
Yoga & Spa de l’île would like to be a resourcing site for the local and regional population.
This site could become a wellness centre available to the local and regional population. The
creator would like to preserve the charm, while providing a range of services that favours
visitors’ health and relaxation. Courses will be offered there on weekends and week days.
The ground floor will have hot and cold baths, a dry sauna, a whirlpool bath, as well as
light therapy and aromatherapy facilities. The second floor will be used for a yoga room
and three treatment rooms (acupuncture, naturopathy, osteopathy and massage therapy).
Offices will be on the last floor.
Annexed to the Manoir d’Youville, the building is intended to be an added value to the hotel
that consequently will become an ideal destination for a retreat to leave the city and relax.
The customers will be local and regional (Candiac, Ste-Martine, Beauharnois, Mercier,
Châteauguay, Sainte-Catherine, Saint-Rémi, even Montreal).
A marketing strategy has already been planned, including:
•		Presence on social media;
•		Word of mouth;
•		Partnerships (Ville de Châteauguay, Chambre de commerce de Châteauguay, Manoir
d’Youville, Héritage Saint-Bernard and other local partners);
•		Presence on discount websites (Groupon, Tuango, etc.);
•		Media relations campaign with journalists and wellness bloggers.
Evaluation
From a positive point of view, the project offers an enormous incentive to stay at the hotel
(the Manoir). This project will have an independent structure from that of the hotel.
With regard to constraints, engineering plans will need to be provided to find out the
feasibility of an underground structure and an inner courtyard. The building is not easily
accessible to persons with reduced mobility and does not have an elevator. In addition, the
market may not be large enough.
26 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville
Ideas and reflections of other citizens
As part of its request for proposals, the Committee received suggestions from many
residents. They did not want to propose a complete project, but instead they wanted to
talk about their preferences for the site’s future vocation. Ideas were gathered by email
during the same period that the more formal projects were submitted.
From the outset, it is important to point out that almost all residents emphasized that the
purchase of the site by the Ville de Châteauguay was a good decision. Respondents also
agreed that it was important to rethink the uses while remaining the owner of the site and
keeping in mind the notions of environmental responsibility specific to current projects.
The surrounding environment of the Manoir d’Youville has been characterized as a precious
asset that is complementary to the building, even though there are some access difficulties
and parking issues.

	CONCLUSIONS
The Committee would like to reiterate that no financial or feasibility benchmarks were used
to assess the projects that could be developed. Feasibility studies, which will be essential
to ensuring the promising development of the recommended projects, should be ordered
by the City.
However, the Committee looked at the requirements and limits that projects could present
in terms of infrastructure.
From all the ideas and projects submitted, the Committee chose to look more closely at
thosethatbestreflectitsfuturevisionofthesiteandthosethatweconsidercomplementary

Île Saint-Bernard is a
crossroads for nature,
culture and history.
Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 29
	 MAJOR PROJECTS
Hotel mission
The Committee believes that the Manoir’s hotel mission must be preserved and that many
of the site’s assets are important:
•		It is the only hotel in the city.
•		The hotel occupancy rate is constantly rising.
•		The two-star hotel status is still compatible with the island’s other vocations.
•		The hotel customers seem to agree that the knoll should be accessible to citizens.
•		The accommodations are provided in a wonderful natural setting at a reasonable price.
•	This place is a City tourist attraction.
•		The number of visitors to the island is constantly growing.
•		The development of new projects is not compromised by the hotel status.
To move forward, the Committee thinks that the hotel should be updated, in either a
superficial manner by a harmonization of the decoration or by wide-scale work, e.g., by
adding bathrooms to some rooms.
Villa Marguerite
Villa Marguerite is a heritage building located near the island entrance in a critical position.
Since 2014, archeological digs took place near the building and many artifacts of the
history of Indigenous people and Whites, the New France period and the seigneurie of
Châteauguay were found. Today, these artifacts are kept in various places.
The Committee hopes that a project will take place in this building that is consistent with,
and at the heart of, the future vision for Manoir d’Youville, namely that Villa Marguerite
become an Interpretation Centre with the objective of highlighting the heritage and
important history of the presence of the Grey Nuns.
To this main project, various attractions can be added: centre for artistic creation, exhibition
and highlighting of cultural and artistic initiatives, selling point for regional products, tourist
attraction, etc.
Given the vacancy of the heritage building and its non-conformity for commercial use, the
Committee believes that there is an urgent need to invest in and preserve this jewel by
giving it a new mission in the short term in order to avoid its continued deterioration which
could possibly jeopardize its existence.
The completion of the project will:
•		Highlight the island and the Ville de Châteauguay;
•		Increase the range of tourism activities;
•		Potentially increase the occupancy rate of the accommodations;
•		Potentially increase traffic in the restaurant.

Health care
With regard to consultations, one of the wishes the most often mentioned was the creation
of a place offering comprehensive health services. The Committee actually believes that
the development of a health care centre aimed to well-being must be at the heart of the
future vision of the site. The project seems relevant and coherent with the place and the
community needs.
The definition of health services differs from one project to another, going from relaxation
and resourcing services to health and therapeutic services offered by various professionals
such as acupuncturists, osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, psychologists.
Since there is no such place in the immediate vicinity, citizens in the sector must go outside
to have access.
Concretely, it is a question of developing a place offering: thermotherapy facilities such
as a steam bath, sauna, whirlpool and cold bath; lounges; as well as a clinical area offering
therapeutic treatment rooms with the common goal of promoting relaxation and access
to health care.
The completion of the project will:
•		Increase the city’s tourist appeal and attractions;
•		Increase the line of services and is an added value for the hotel;
•		Increase the hotel’s occupancy rate;
•		Can have an influence on restaurant traffic (the Bistro la Traite and the Manoir’s future
restaurant);
•		Allow residents of the Greater Châteauguay area to use other services at the Manoir than
the Manoir’s hotel services;
•		Enjoy the peacefulness of the site and its surroundings;
•		Be respectful of the environment and the heritage;
•		Contribute to the accessibility of the knoll by citizens.
Various ideas were shared: the upper stories of the Manoir, on the roof or in the Vieux-
Manoir. Each of these ideas has both advantages and disadvantages that could be better
assessed by a feasibility study.
	COMPLEMENTARY
	SERVICES
Community organizations
The Committee is open to making space available for recognized community organizations,
which already benefit from a price grid at a special rate. These organizations should,
however, by their use of premises and the customers served, be able to cohabit with the
other customers on the site.
Hotel / restaurant training centre
Although preliminary, the project to create specialized restaurant training is attractive. By
working on a partnership with recognized partners in the restaurant industry, such as ITHQ
and/or Emploi-Québec, Manoir d’Youville could become a hub of attraction for students
and customers.
A new kitchen, built according to standards, could thus be used mainly for school purposes
and by cooking classes for the people of Châteauguay. Students and graduates of such a
centre could improve the Manoir’s restaurant offerings, but also work in other locations in
the region.

  • 4. 4 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville BACKGROUND The Ville de Châteauguay acquired Manoir D’Youville, a manor house, from the Grey Nuns in 2011 to promote the collective heritage and benefit the people of Châteauguay. From 2011 to 2013, the management of the Manoir D’Youville’s operations was entrusted to Héritage Saint-Bernard, which is primarily in charge of managing the Refuge faunique Marguerite D’Youville, the Centre écologique Fernand-Séguin, the Ruisseau Saint-Jean and the Parc de la commune, as well as the Île Saint-Bernard pavilion. In fall 2012, the Ville de Châteauguay administration began discussions with the Fondation Compagnom resulting in having it take over the management and development of the Manoir D’Youville, a manor house. This proposal, which was aimed at leveraging the expertise of Serge Choinière, Foundation president and a recognized expert in tourism and the hotel industry, to make the Manoir a site for the Foundation’s charitable activities, was finalized in spring 2013. The mission of Fondation Compagnom, a non-profit social economy organization, consists primarily in offering respite care for people with mental health problems and their caregivers. This mission is a historical continuation of the charitable activities of the Grey Nuns who built the Manoir. 1

A graduate of a business management technology program, she is currently employed by a real estate developer and builder.

  • 7. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 7 Nicole Ladouceur Nicole Ladouceur has been a Châteauguay resident for over 40 years. After graduating in administration (D.E.C and university certificate), she worked in banking for a few years. Afterwards, she worked with persons with an intellectual disability. This experience was very revealing for her and led her to a career change. Then, for 37 years, she worked as a social worker at CALACS Châteauguay, a community organization whose mission is to counter sexual violence against women. In parallel, she completed a psychosocial intervention certificate. This work experience allowed her to acquire a good knowledge of the community setting. With her many contacts, she follows various regional environmental issues and the future of Île St-Bernard with interest. Over the years, she has often felt the need to get involved in safeguarding and preserving this magnificent jewel. She is proud that her city is the owner of Manoir D’Youville, a marvelous historical site. She would like the knoll and its facilities to provide services and activities for both local and regional citizens with the objective of sharing the most beautiful part of the City: Île Saint- Bernard. Marilène Côté Marilène Côté has lived in Châteauguay since she was born, as have her parents. After following an artistic path, she turned to the field of traditional Chinese medicine. After 15 years of jazz, classical and modern dance, she studied drama at Collège de Saint- Laurent. Then, in conjunction with studies in fashion design and technique, she worked as a costume designer on several production sets for production companies, including Radio-Canada. During her years of study, she also gained experience as a production assistant, primarily in advertising. A 2006 acupuncture graduate, she became the owner of an acupuncture clinic in 2007. In addition to a traditional general practice, she does obstetrical acupuncture in both private practice and a hospital setting. In 2017, she pursued her studies of traditional Chinese medicine with medical Qigong. A recent graduate of the practitioner level in 2019, she is currently studying medical Qigong with the goal of completing her doctorate.

  • 9. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 9 TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE CONSULTATION In order to democratize the process, the Committee launched an invitation to citizens, businesses, merchants and organizations of Châteauguay asking them to express their vision of the best possible uses for Manoir D’Youville. The objective was also to allow citizens to reappropriate the site in the long term. Means used to reach the population • Press release in local newspapers and on social media; • Ville de Châteauguay website and social networks; • Personalized email sent to community organizations accredited by the City; • Email sent to members of the Chambre de commerce du Grand Châteauguay; • Message to business owners (Mayor’s Luncheon); • Word of mouth. 5
  • 10. 10 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville • Restrictions included in the 2011 act of purchase. The Ville de Châteauguay acquired part of Île Saint-Bernard from the Grey Nuns of Montreal, as well as the buildings and structures erected there, with the commitment to preserve the current vocation of the site and its natural and cultural attributes. The Parliament of Quebec in fact decreed that the City may operate accommodations and a food service establishment in the buildings of which it has acquired ownership by virtue of the act of purchase published in the registry office of the registration division of Châteauguay (number 18053650). In order to exercise this right, the following conditions must be met: • The City must retain ownership of all the buildings acquired under the act of purchase referred to in the above paragraph; • The vocation of these buildings as public places, used mainly for cultural, recreational and community activities, must be maintained; • The Ville de Châteauguay may entrust a person with the operation of the buildings. • The need to protect the heritage. • The compatibility of the main mission, activities and customer base. PROPOSAL EVALUATION CRITERIA The evaluation grid had multiple criteria and was intended to validate whether the project and the knoll were accessible to citizens, including people with reduced mobility, whether the project complied with the architectural constraints of the site, whether there was an incentive to stay in the hotel and whether it was designed to increase the number of visitors to the site. The grid also focused on measuring a project’s potential impact, its economic and tourism spinoffs, as well as the needs met and the activities offered. Contraints Apart from the evaluation grid used, the Committee members also kept in mind the various constraints against which ideas or possible projects should be compared affecting their completion. The constraints taken into account included the following: • The geographical location of the site, which is somewhat isolated. The location is difficult to access because: • Public transit does not serve the site; • The bridge spanning the Châteauguay River has limited width and capacity. • Parking • The collective parking lot is often used by the many visitors to Île Saint-Bernard; • Parking dedicated exclusively to Manoir D’Youville, Bistro La Traite and events (shows, apple picking, private celebrations, Écomarché, etc.) and the knoll is limited; • Overflows occur during some events; • Residents living on neighbouring streets are exasperated by cars sometimes parked on the street. • The Manoir’s infrastructure is outdated. There is asbestos in sections of the walls and the dual energy (heating oil / electricity) heating system could be more efficient. CONSULTATION Over 30 residents took advantage of this invitation to submit their ideas, opinions and projects, either on their own behalf or on behalf of an organization from the cultural, social, community, business or health sectors. 6 7

  • 12. 12 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville AVIF Châteauguay Action sur la Violence et Intervention Familiale (AVIF) is a non-profit organization that offers an individual and group intervention program for men and adolescents from ages 12 to 20 who want to overcome their controlling and violent behaviour. The AVIF team acts as a spokesperson for community organizations. It would like to use part of the Manoir to allow community organizations to share offices, provided that organizations are chosen that have common customers. It has asked about the possibility of using public transportation so that customers can come to the Manoir. The organizations would pay rent to the Manoir to lease the space, according to a rate grid. Evaluation The Committee approves the request because it complies with the Manoir d’Youville’s current operations and many activities could be carried out there. The Committee considers that many organizations share the same challenges as AVIF Châteauguay and that a portion of the Manoir could be dedicated to those activities. PROJECTS SUBMITTED Association des Arts Visuels du Grand Châteauguay (AAGVC) Community organization dedicated to culture The Association d’Arts Visuels du Grand Châteauguay has been active since 2000. Depending on the year, it has between 65 and 80 members: local painters, photographers, sculptors and glassmakers, whether professional or non-professional. The main goal of the Association is to support artists in their careers and in the creation of original works and to give them a platform to exhibit their work. It also aims to raise awareness of the visual arts among the regional population. Villa Marguerite: Rooms and exhibition hall with reception counter The Association plans to hire professional artists to give courses to its members: workshops in watercolours, light therapy (with fused glass), sculpture, stained glass, etc., as well as relaxation times and specific activities with the elderly. The Association has about 50 artists who could stay at the Manoir at a reduced rate for a duration that would depend on the different activities. The idea is to turn Villa Marguerite into an exhibition hall with a reception counter to welcome customers. To do so, the Association will need Villa Marguerite, which will serve as a permanent office, as well as an exhibition hall. It will hire professional artists who could give courses to the members and the public. The Association suggests that the various organizations be met by the Committee in order to find out what their respective space needs are. Evaluation This project is well aligned with the site and the overall vision for it. It is complementary to current hotel operations and to a potential interpretation centre. 8
  • 13. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 13 Camp musical de Châteauguay The musical camp is a non-profit cultural organization that has existed since 2015 and is focused on music through musical promotion, dissemination and learning. Manoir The Camp musical de Châteauguay aims to offer three sessions of five days of musical training to young musicians and singers from ages 6 to 17 in the Montérégie West region, which must currently go to another region to obtain a similar service. Those who are most advanced and already seriously learning their instrument will find interesting training opportunities there. Beginners will enjoy learning an instrument and singing in a choir, and will make many musical discoveries. In addition to classes on their instrument, participants will be offered various musical workshops, such as choir singing, percussion instruments and the history of music, as well as sports, recreational and cultural activities, including pool, beach, sailing, canoeing, circus, ecology, archeology and history workshops. The project has attracted the attention of numerous artists, including opera singer Marie-Josée Lord, who has agreed to act as the spokesperson for the Camp musical de Châteauguay and possibly as a voice teacher. This project, which is now offered exclusively in the Eastern Townships and Laurentians regions, could be eligible for attractive government grants. In addition, the people in charge of the camp have compared their services to those of other camps in Quebec to make sure that they are competitive. They have also prepared implementation and marketing strategies to publicize their project. They have even a developed a sample schedule that would apply to some 150 young people registered every year, after a start-up year with 90 registrations. This schedule also includes shows presented to the public. Specific needs: • One large room for meetings and group classes; • 10 to 15 small rooms for private and semi-private classes and personal practice space; • Space for outdoor activities; • Cafeteria for lunches and snacks. Evaluation This project provides an opportunity for financial benefits in addition to being complementary to current activities. Carried out in an ad hoc manner, it should be easy to include it in the Manoir’s events calendar.
  • 14. 14 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Cercle des fermières Saint-Jean-Baptiste-Marie-Viennay Owing to their activities and the various charities they support, the Cercles de Fermières du Québec contribute to improving the living conditions of women and families, as well as to the preservation and transmission of our cultural and craft heritage. Manoir Many projects are used to transfer their knowledge and save various types of heritage. The members, consisting of 55 women aged 55 or over, aim to break seniors’ solitude and isolation, and to welcome and share information with new immigrants, help them develop a sense of belonging, provide a place for young retirees and encourage volunteering. Members would like the City to provide space, either in a city building or seniors’ residence. The church building where they meet will not always be available and, according to them, they need to think about the future. They are looking for a space to house their weaving loom in order to mitigate the difficulties experienced in their current premises that are shared with the other activities offered. Evaluation This project blends in well with the site and its proposed vision. It is complementary to the current activities of the hotel industry and also to a potential interpretation centre. Centre multifonctionnel Horizon The Centre multifonctionnel Horizon is a community organization for persons with a physical or intellectual disability or an autism spectrum disorder. The organization offers day activities during the week for adults over age 18, to allow work-family balance and a respite care service. Manoir The Centre Horizon sees a development opportunity to double its area at the Manoir. In partnership with the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux with regard to staff, it hopes to extend its respite service for short- and long-term stays to not only meet a need, but also to have a direct impact on it. Under the heading of a second home, the Centre Horizon offers persons with disabilities and their families a place of special and adapted growth and social development, providing parents with significant support. There is a huge need for this type of resource. Evaluation The Committee believes that the commitment of the Ville de Châteauguay and the hotel should be long term. The transformation of a wing of the hotel will lead to considerable investment and many adjustments to the site infrastructure, which should be analyzed by professionals in the event that this type of project moves forward. With a view to bringing the need for space back as a priority, partnerships could be entered into between the Manoir and the Centre multifonctionnel Horizon. In addition, the potential mix of the hotel’s customers (medical, tourism and hotel) remains an unknown factor that will require some skill in the subsequent management of the site’s use.
  • 15. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 15 Clinique Spa Marilène Côté has lived in Châteauguay since she was born. She is an acupuncturist and has owned her clinic in Châteauguay for 13 years. She practises medical Qigong and is currently studying this approach to traditional Chinese medicine leading to a doctorate in medical Qigong. Manoir and outdoor environment Ms. Côté would like to create a therapy centre on the site, which would bring together a number of local professionals. The projected clinical centre would require the creation of 15 to 20 treatment rooms to allow close co-operation between various holistic therapists with western-style therapists. Treatment rooms such as hyperbaric chamber, oxygen bar and light therapy would also be created to expand the range of services. These facilities, in wing A, would make it possible to combine the view that the customers would have on a country setting with possible access to the roofs of the dining room and the old mill. Wing C could be used for the bathrooms, showers and changing rooms, as well as for the break room, which would be refurbished in the old chapel. There would be different areas for relaxation, either lying down or meditation, which could also be used for Qigong, Tai Qi and Yoga sessions. In the room located above the room in the old mill, access to the outside would allow the development of a terrace area for steam and dry saunas. Customers using the saunas would benefit from the panorama visible through bay windows. A polar wall is planned near the lawn facing the orchard while, a few feet away, heading to the old mill, a large spa, or many moveable spas, could serve customers. The project provides for the possibility of developing a second phase by adding other spas and saunas in the middle of the courtyard, including a sports swimming spa and relaxation and warmth areas with healthy plant landscaping. A terrace area will be developed on the roof of the current dining room. In addition to a terrace, this space will be used as a garden for medicinal plants and edible flowers, and it will have a splendid view of the orchard. All of the Manoir divisions contain asbestos which would require an expensive decontamination in the event of changes to the current divisions. Consequently, the planned project allows the use of all the walls in their current state. Evaluation This project does not limit access to the knoll. It represents a complementary offer that harmonizes with potential activities on the site and which is susceptible to attracting and diversifying customers. The hotel portion would be slightly reduced. The project is slightly intrusive—in that the clinical portion uses the existing rooms of the Manoir—in relation to the landscape.
  • 16. 16 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Jardins-Roussillon User Committee The user committee is an independent organization, resulting from the application of the Quebec Act respecting Health Services and Social Services. Its goal is to protect health care patient rights. • Inform users of their rights and obligations; • Promote the improvement of the quality of the living conditions of users and evaluate their degree of satisfaction; • Defend users’ rights and collective interests; • Guide and assist users, on request, in any steps they take, including complaints; • Ensure the proper functioning of the three residents’ committees. Manoir A bolstered front-line service for urgent needs will be open 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, thus reducing long wait times at the Anna-Laberge hospital. The user committee intends to use the entire ground floor for the super clinic. Evaluation Many issues were raised related to this project, particularly the presence of asbestos in the Manoir walls. In addition, the Manoir d’Youville is currently a peaceful place and this tranquility will be considerably disturbed by the noise of ambulances and all the movement on the site. The new infrastructure configuration would prohibit the hotel vocation and the accessibility to the island would have to be completely rethought. In addition, the hotel’s customer mix (medical, tourism and hotel) remains an unknown factor that requires some skill in the subsequent management of the site’s use. Église verte de Saint-Joachim Committee Religious Committee with an environmental character The Réseau des Églises vertes assists Christian communities in Canada in raising environmental awareness. The projects carried out by the Saint-Joachim Committee aim to promote an ecological lifestyle and to build ties between parishioners who share a common goal, namely that of building a better future for future generations. Villa Marguerite: Archaeology exhibition As the Villa has been used as accommodations for archaeologists, it might be interesting to transform the site into a museum. If research is to continue, this museum would be enriched over the years and become a tourist attraction to complement the Pointe-du- Buisson museum in Beauharnois (Melocheville). Manoir Proposals : • Meeting rooms / boardrooms; • Camps for spring break with lodging for families (in co-operation with Héritage Saint- Bernard); • Yoga, Tai-Chi and meditation camps; • Retreat for nuns for rest or a convalescence home; • Diocesan retreats in partnership with the Saint-Joachim parish for the sacred portion; • Promotion of the location for shooting films; • Possible collaboration with Kahnawake due to traces of Indigenous people on the Manoir site (trading post / interpretation centre). Any use should maintain the vocation of the site, namely a nature park for Châteauguay residents, in compliance with the original agreement with the Sisters of Charity (Grey Nuns). Evaluation The Committee believes that the project is noteworthy, especially the collaborative aspect with Kahnawake. This project blends in well with the location and the related vision. It complements the current hotel activities and is also a potential interpretation centre.
  • 17. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 17 Fédération de l’Âge d’Or du Québec (FADOQ) Saint-Joachim de Châteauguay FADOQ Saint-Joachim de Châteauguay is a local community organization that, together with the FADOQ network in Quebec, brings together and represents people who are 50 years old and over in order to maintain and improve their quality of life. It defends and promotes their collective rights, highlights their contribution to society and supports them through programs, services and activities, particularly involving recreation, culture, sport and the outdoors. Vieux-Manoir and Villa Marguerite The 1,970 members of the FADOQ Saint-Joachim Club would like the Manoir to make room for persons who need palliative care, including seniors. The development of the Vieux Manoir portion of Villa Marguerite is the ideal place for palliative care ensuring a good quality of life on which the organization is working. FADOQ will not sponsor the project; it only submits the idea. Evaluation This project is not easily compatible with a hotel vocation. ESPACE Châteauguay Since 1985, the ESPACE organizations have been working to ensure that more and more children in Quebec can live their childhood in safety and without violence. Preventing violence means to give children the means to protect themselves against all forms of aggression, but also, significantly, to make adults aware of their role in prevention and equip them to assist children. Manoir ESPACE Châteauguay has expressed an interest in occupying part of the Manoir D’Youville for its offices. According to the organization, many community organizations could group together and be housed there, making it a peaceful place that is appropriate for the various activities that each organization may need to organize. This idea is intended to be an evaluation of the possibility to occupy larger spaces and maximize partnership possibilities with other local community organizations. Evaluation The Committee looks favourably on the request since it agrees with current activities of the Manoir d’Youville and a good number of activities could take place there. With a view to ensuring that the need for a room comes back to the forefront of community organizations’ concerns, partnerships could be established between the Manoir and them. In addition, the potential mix of customers remains an unknown factor that requires some skill in the subsequent management of the site’s use.
  • 18. 18 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Fondation Compagnom Fondation Compagnom is a social economy business possessing recognized expertise in tourism, hotel and restauration management, whose main mission is to promote better mental health in the population through the implementation of various initiatives from a prevention viewpoint. The Foundation has been the manager of the entire Manoir D’Youville site since 2013. Vision du site A hotel that distinguishes itself by a clear positioning centered around wellness and that adds a professional and popular training component, an establishment that integrates facilities and activities dedicated to increased use by the population of Châteauguay and its community organizations. The project primarily consists in pursuing and consolidating the hotel vocation by improving the offer available in the Manoir by upgrading the rooms and common areas (reception rooms, corridors, etc.), while maintaining the current configuration of the rooms overall to minimize the investment. A concept that: • Is aimed at profitability, both financial and social; • Wants to make the public proud of the Manoir; • Is based on a realistic and rigorous approach to management; • Is inspired by Compagnom’s expertise and knowledge. This positioning involves four components: • Hotel business: wellness and religious tourism; • Public use; • Kitchen training; • Heritage and artistic expression.
  • 19. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 19 The Vieux-Manoir The concept is based on that of a wellness centre in a separate hotel establishment, characterized by a variety of physical and mental resourcing activities (conferences, workshops, health food, relaxation, meditation, prayer, yoga, silence and care). The Vieux-Manoir will be renovated to allow various health professionals (physiotherapists, acupuncturists and psychologists) to have offices developed on an ad hoc or regular basis. The building would become a health care and wellness centre that would include spas. Simultaneously, the Manoir will design, organize and commercialize a series of complementary activities intended for day customers, but which will also be available to Châteauguay residents. This program is intended to promote a greater use of rooms and of hotel services, but also to add to the City’s services. The kitchen in the Manoir d’Youville will be transformed into a modern restaurant with an updated menu focused on vegetarianism. This original restaurant concept will add to the current supply of restaurants available in Châteauguay and will be accessible to the local population. Citizen use | various locations The population of Châteauguay already uses the Manoir d’Youville throughout the year for various purposes: municipal or business meetings, room rentals by families or community organizations, fundraising activities by charitable organizations, citizens for brunches and theme dinners or meals at the Bistro La Traite. To add a few thousand users of the Manoir each year, the Compagnom project includes increased and different aspects for citizen use: • The chapel will become a multi-purpose room, a cooperative space at the service of organizations; • Villa Marguerite will become an interpretation centre on ground level and a space for artistic creation and exhibition on the second floor; • The training kitchen to be built would be collective kitchens; • Facilitated activities will be offered inside and outside in co-operation with municipal services: culinary discoveries, mulled wine in winter around braziers, sugar shack theme, initiation to yoga or walking meditation, stroller workout and baby massage classes. Manoir and Vieux-Manoir | kitchen training Aco-operationagreementwouldbeestablishedwiththeCommissionscolairedesGrandes- Seigneuries in Châteauguay and a professional teaching establishment recognized in the restaurant field, such as ITHQ and/or with Emploi-Québec, to offer a training program, possibly focused as a priority on immigrants wanting to take specialized training to quickly integrate into the Quebec labour market. A training kitchen will be installed and used mainly for school purposes, and cooking classes for Châteauguay residents. Current kitchens will be used for the practical training component. Initially, a block of 23 rooms, grouped in wing C on the top floor of the Manoir, could be used as housing for students. A classroom will be developed for theoretical courses. Villa-Marguerite | heritage and artistic expression Insofar as the City would be willing to make the investments required to preserve and develop Villa Marguerite, Compagnom will give the building an interpretation centre on the main floor (prehistory and the island’s history) and a centre of creation and artistic exhibits on the second floor. This project will be carried out together with the Société muséale du Grand Châteauguay and the Association d’art visuel du Grand Châteauguay (which both have submitted projects for this purpose). Evaluation The proposed interpretation centre in Villa-Marguerite is an essential project and the partnership formula is noteworthy and winning. The spa and care centre project is complementary to the current activities and many future possibilities that could be developed. The introduction of a restaurant would fill an important gap in the food supply. However, the process leading to the approval to open a training school, however reputable, is very long. The cost-effectiveness of providing such training is also questioned. The project, taken as a whole, allows for a consolidation of the developments undertaken in recent years, while at the same time adding components fostering greater citizen use and a higher tourism supply.

  • 21. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 21 François Le Borgne Mr. Le Borgne is the municipal councillor of District D’Youville (8). He is also a lecturer at the faculty of permanent education—in law—at the University of Montreal. Mr. Le Borgne attended a Committee meeting to promote dome project proposals which could have added value for the site without leaning in favour of any one of these potential initiatives. The projects are as follows: • Establish a coworking centre. Coworking aims at self-employed workers, professionals, small start-ups and medium-to-large businesses in urban centres, but which have employees living in the suburbs. Coworking is primarily intended to commercialize open plan office space (many employees) or closed offices (one or two people and some with 3 to 4 people). Shared consultation/meeting premises with or without relaxation/meals must be planned. • Complementary hub similar to a university. The hotel rooms would become small classrooms, but delocalized by means of videoconferencing (1 screen, 1 wall camera and 1 camera over the central table). These classrooms should accommodate 3 to 6 students. Also, large classes could be installed in more spacious rooms or by opening up only a few rooms. Lecture courses could be carried out in the large rooms on ground level. • Network of community organizations. Hotel rooms could become small shared offices (two to four employees). Organizations could use meeting rooms or coworking rooms and certain resources when they are not needed by coworking collaborators. This creation of a hub of organizations would reflect what was done on the Montreal Olympic Stadium site. • Convert the chapel into a multipurpose room. The transformation of the chapel would meet the needs of the training activities for the region (e.g., lectures, shows) and would be complementary to the events and event-related activities of the Pavilion. This room could also be used by the City Council or as a place for holding citizen consultations. • Create a cooking school in conjunction with ITHQ. This school could be a partnership with the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ) (Montreal) and/or the École hôtelière de la Montérégie (Longueuil). A coordination with the planned training hub (see above) would allow us to benefit from training rooms, particularly videoconferences which would be useful for exchanges with cooking schools / national or foreign hotels or with personalities in the field who live elsewhere in Quebec or around the world. This avenue would meet the demand for gastronomic food in the region. • Redesigned accommodations. It is advisable to have accommodations on the island to meet the needs of two types of customers who have opposite interests and financial means. Modest-priced accommodations (two stars), which we currently have on the site, could be limited to the rooms in the remaining hallways. Top quality accommodations (four stars) could be installed in the Annex (Vieux Manoir). Needless to say, this type of accommodations would give our city a special tourist showcase. • Outdoor pool. It is a matter of renovating the pool and allowing the installation of an attractive pool (design and pavilion / screen doors) as well as moveable partitions allowing, from time to time, the opening of the pool area onto Bistrot La Traite. It could be useful for carrying out lively, festive/corporate and outdoor networking. In normal times, the pool could be available as a priority to hotel customers and coworking collaborators. • Training centre, research and observatory of Indigenous issues. We could add a hallway with a mix of offices and classrooms. The renovation could be carried out in compliance with Indigenous values. This centre could coordinate training events, such as videoconferences with other Indigenous communities or other schools. It would allow a research and training interface between Indigenous, Quebec and Canadian institutions. Hotel/cooking training programs according to Indigenous values and traditions could be planned (subject to receiving substantial grants). • A history interpretation centre in Villa Marguerite. The interpretation centre would contain a permanent exhibit of artefacts showcasing Châteauguay’s French colonial history, the interaction with our Indigenous neighbours and the way of life of the nuns who occupied the island for a long time. This activity would be a new tourism showcase. Other ideas: • Bring in Lole so they can give yoga classes; • Hold repertory cinema evenings; • Install an unloading dock. Evaluation Some projects have already been completed (co-working centre) or are in the process of being completed in Châteauguay (reading docks) and do not provide added value or need expansion. All of the suggestions could be retained and expanded to align with other projects that could be developed on the site.
  • 22. 22 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Héritage Saint-Bernard Héritage Saint-Bernard is a non-profit organization in the environmental field, whose mission is to protect and promote natural environments and to offer educational and recreational tourism activities. The organization has proposed a number of solutions to better develop municipal equipment for the good of the community and from the point of view of social and economic profitability. Villa Marguerite Musée d’histoire de l’Île Saint-Bernard. If established, a museum could display the many artefacts found during archeological digs from 2014 to 2018 by the University of Montreal. Space will be reserved for the sale of regional products and a tourist information desk will be established with the Ministère du Tourisme. There is also the possibility of opening an agrifood boutique. Artistic creation workshops. Some rooms in the building can be transformed to create artists’ workshops. Manoir Wholehealthcentre. This site could provide massage therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, osteopathy services. There could also be a spa on the roof of Manoir d’Youville that would be a unique site in the region. Héritage Saint-Bernard also proposes to develop a number of packages that would combine activities such as healthy cooking classes, yoga and meditation classes and a premium food service. Multipurpose room. Benches could be removed from the Manoir d’Youville’s old chapel to make a multipurpose room that artists can use to exhibit their work. We could also offer yoga and tai-chi courses there and much more. Records and offices. To save the City money because it pays for storage space for its records, Héritage Saint-Bernard proposes to provide a space on the second floor of the Manoir for this purpose. Space for community groups. Héritage Saint-Bernard would like to bring together community groups in one of the wings of the building to create a synergy between the various groups and thus combine their administrative expenses and share customers. This would free the downtown area in order to rent to other organizations and thus recover taxes. Vieux-Manoir Luxury rooms in the Vieux-Manoir. In 2012, Michel Létourneau, architect, submitted preliminary plans to completely renovate the interior of the Vieux-Manoir by adding 28 luxury rooms. This project is estimated to cost $2.6 M. A market study could be conducted and possibly grants could be obtained to create it. Importance of public transportation Héritage Saint-Bernard would like to use the Beauharnois public transportation system as a model by offering citizens free service. A similar system would also be cost-effective for neighbouring cities such as Beauharnois and Mercier. The organization believes, moreover. that a good project for the site would be the construction of green parking. Evaluation Most of the ideas suggested blend well with the site and the related vision; they are complementary to the current hotel activities and also to a potential interpretation centre. Luxury rooms would require a significant investment that could be difficult to make profitable and that would negatively affect the mix and availability. With regard to the conservation of the municipality’s records, this situation has been resolved and, moreover, the need for luxury rooms is no longer a hot topic.

  • 24. 24 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Société du Musée du Grand Châteauguay (SMGC) The Société du Musée du Grand Châteauguay manages Maison LePailleur. Its mission is to contribute to preserving, enhancing, disseminating and promoting tangible and intangible heritage in the Greater Châteauguay area, in light of improving access to Quebec history. It brings together under its supervision the management of buildings on the Maison LePailleur heritage site and promotes museum activities through the interpretation and enrichment of the permanent collection. Manoir • Showcase local flavour by involving the population: Create spaces dedicated to local organizations whose activities and vocation could benefit the tourist experience. • Promote cultural initiatives aimed to enhance the premises: Implement mechanisms to foster active and creative visitor participation. Provide visitors with the opportunity to live a unique and extraordinary experience through cultural history. • Call on an interior design professional to beautify the premises and achieve hotel standard consistency (with a local flavour); • Propose different types of accommodations to encourage meetings; attractive dormitory rooms, capsule rooms, family rooms and business suites; • Deliver services meeting the growing need for well-being; • Provide separate common spaces, both daytime and nighttime, to improve the vitality of the premises and encourage exchanges. Villa Marguerite The Société du Grand Châteauguay (SMGC) wishes to establish an interpretation centre. The Ville de Châteauguay has supported the organization for a long time and, over the years, the SMGC has developed substantial museum expertise. While the Maison LePailleur already houses a museum, the SMGC believes that the Villa Marguerite could be a place that is complementary to it in every way, without forgetting, however, the standardization of museum institutions. The concept of an interpretation centre would therefore be entirely appropriate for a place that provides quality interpretation (adequate space, relevant teaching tools, quality visit scenarios), but that has no collection, research policy or educational program. Co-management of Villa Marguerite could be foreseen between the Compagnom Foundation and the SMGC, with the support of major partners, notably the Musée d’archéologie de Roussillon, Héritage Saint-Bernard and the Archives and Collections of the Sisters of Charity of Montreal. Evaluation The Committee believes that the opportunities for partnerships and the content of the project proposed by the SMCG concerning Villa Marguerite are exceptional and are fully consistent with the current capabilities of the site and the improvements that could be made in line with the activities taking place on the site, but also in the region. This project provides an exceptional showcase for transmitting, showcasing and preserving the history of the site and the Grey Nuns’ heritage.
  • 25. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 25 Yoga et spa de l’île Melissa Vaillancourt is the project’s driving force; she sees herself as either the owner or the manager of the site. She is certified by Yoga Sangha and accredited by the International Yoga Federation. Mélissa Vaillancourt has taught yoga since 2010, including at the Manoir d’Youville. Vieux-Manoir Yoga & Spa de l’île would like to be a resourcing site for the local and regional population. This site could become a wellness centre available to the local and regional population. The creator would like to preserve the charm, while providing a range of services that favours visitors’ health and relaxation. Courses will be offered there on weekends and week days. The ground floor will have hot and cold baths, a dry sauna, a whirlpool bath, as well as light therapy and aromatherapy facilities. The second floor will be used for a yoga room and three treatment rooms (acupuncture, naturopathy, osteopathy and massage therapy). Offices will be on the last floor. Annexed to the Manoir d’Youville, the building is intended to be an added value to the hotel that consequently will become an ideal destination for a retreat to leave the city and relax. The customers will be local and regional (Candiac, Ste-Martine, Beauharnois, Mercier, Châteauguay, Sainte-Catherine, Saint-Rémi, even Montreal). A marketing strategy has already been planned, including: • Presence on social media; • Word of mouth; • Partnerships (Ville de Châteauguay, Chambre de commerce de Châteauguay, Manoir d’Youville, Héritage Saint-Bernard and other local partners); • Presence on discount websites (Groupon, Tuango, etc.); • Media relations campaign with journalists and wellness bloggers. Evaluation From a positive point of view, the project offers an enormous incentive to stay at the hotel (the Manoir). This project will have an independent structure from that of the hotel. With regard to constraints, engineering plans will need to be provided to find out the feasibility of an underground structure and an inner courtyard. The building is not easily accessible to persons with reduced mobility and does not have an elevator. In addition, the market may not be large enough.
  • 26. 26 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Ideas and reflections of other citizens As part of its request for proposals, the Committee received suggestions from many residents. They did not want to propose a complete project, but instead they wanted to talk about their preferences for the site’s future vocation. Ideas were gathered by email during the same period that the more formal projects were submitted. From the outset, it is important to point out that almost all residents emphasized that the purchase of the site by the Ville de Châteauguay was a good decision. Respondents also agreed that it was important to rethink the uses while remaining the owner of the site and keeping in mind the notions of environmental responsibility specific to current projects. The surrounding environment of the Manoir d’Youville has been characterized as a precious asset that is complementary to the building, even though there are some access difficulties and parking issues.

  • 28. 28 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville CONCLUSIONS The Committee would like to reiterate that no financial or feasibility benchmarks were used to assess the projects that could be developed. Feasibility studies, which will be essential to ensuring the promising development of the recommended projects, should be ordered by the City. However, the Committee looked at the requirements and limits that projects could present in terms of infrastructure. From all the ideas and projects submitted, the Committee chose to look more closely at thosethatbestreflectitsfuturevisionofthesiteandthosethatweconsidercomplementary and which could be attached to this vision. 9 “ ” Île Saint-Bernard is a crossroads for nature, culture and history.
  • 29. Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville | 29 MAJOR PROJECTS Hotel mission The Committee believes that the Manoir’s hotel mission must be preserved and that many of the site’s assets are important: • It is the only hotel in the city. • The hotel occupancy rate is constantly rising. • The two-star hotel status is still compatible with the island’s other vocations. • The hotel customers seem to agree that the knoll should be accessible to citizens. • The accommodations are provided in a wonderful natural setting at a reasonable price. • This place is a City tourist attraction. • The number of visitors to the island is constantly growing. • The development of new projects is not compromised by the hotel status. To move forward, the Committee thinks that the hotel should be updated, in either a superficial manner by a harmonization of the decoration or by wide-scale work, e.g., by adding bathrooms to some rooms. Villa Marguerite Villa Marguerite is a heritage building located near the island entrance in a critical position. Since 2014, archeological digs took place near the building and many artifacts of the history of Indigenous people and Whites, the New France period and the seigneurie of Châteauguay were found. Today, these artifacts are kept in various places. The Committee hopes that a project will take place in this building that is consistent with, and at the heart of, the future vision for Manoir d’Youville, namely that Villa Marguerite become an Interpretation Centre with the objective of highlighting the heritage and important history of the presence of the Grey Nuns. To this main project, various attractions can be added: centre for artistic creation, exhibition and highlighting of cultural and artistic initiatives, selling point for regional products, tourist attraction, etc. Given the vacancy of the heritage building and its non-conformity for commercial use, the Committee believes that there is an urgent need to invest in and preserve this jewel by giving it a new mission in the short term in order to avoid its continued deterioration which could possibly jeopardize its existence. The completion of the project will: • Highlight the island and the Ville de Châteauguay; • Increase the range of tourism activities; • Potentially increase the occupancy rate of the accommodations; • Potentially increase traffic in the restaurant. 10
  • 30. 30 | Rapport du comité consultatif du Manoir D’Youville Health care With regard to consultations, one of the wishes the most often mentioned was the creation of a place offering comprehensive health services. The Committee actually believes that the development of a health care centre aimed to well-being must be at the heart of the future vision of the site. The project seems relevant and coherent with the place and the community needs. The definition of health services differs from one project to another, going from relaxation and resourcing services to health and therapeutic services offered by various professionals such as acupuncturists, osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, psychologists. Since there is no such place in the immediate vicinity, citizens in the sector must go outside to have access. Concretely, it is a question of developing a place offering: thermotherapy facilities such as a steam bath, sauna, whirlpool and cold bath; lounges; as well as a clinical area offering therapeutic treatment rooms with the common goal of promoting relaxation and access to health care. The completion of the project will: • Increase the city’s tourist appeal and attractions; • Increase the line of services and is an added value for the hotel; • Increase the hotel’s occupancy rate; • Can have an influence on restaurant traffic (the Bistro la Traite and the Manoir’s future restaurant); • Allow residents of the Greater Châteauguay area to use other services at the Manoir than the Manoir’s hotel services; • Enjoy the peacefulness of the site and its surroundings; • Be respectful of the environment and the heritage; • Contribute to the accessibility of the knoll by citizens. Various ideas were shared: the upper stories of the Manoir, on the roof or in the Vieux- Manoir. Each of these ideas has both advantages and disadvantages that could be better assessed by a feasibility study. COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES Community organizations The Committee is open to making space available for recognized community organizations, which already benefit from a price grid at a special rate. These organizations should, however, by their use of premises and the customers served, be able to cohabit with the other customers on the site. Hotel / restaurant training centre Although preliminary, the project to create specialized restaurant training is attractive. By working on a partnership with recognized partners in the restaurant industry, such as ITHQ and/or Emploi-Québec, Manoir d’Youville could become a hub of attraction for students and customers. A new kitchen, built according to standards, could thus be used mainly for school purposes and by cooking classes for the people of Châteauguay. Students and graduates of such a centre could improve the Manoir’s restaurant offerings, but also work in other locations in the region. 11
