The New Vic Project

New website coming soon!

For more than a century, the Royal Victoria Hospital was a central part of the circle of life for thousands upon thousands of Montrealers. It was about healing, about helping, about leading the way in new types of medical treatment. Now the historic site’s vocation is changing in exciting and important ways that will benefit not just McGillians, Montrealers, Quebecers, and Canadians, but the entire planet.

In collaboration with the Government of Quebec’s Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI), McGill University is developing a proposal to reimagine a portion of the former hospital site as a state-of-the-art research, teaching and learning hub dedicated to Sustainability Systems and Public Policy.  The project offers more than simply an answer to the University's shortage of teaching an research space - it is an unprecedented opportunity to provide leadership on crucial subjects at a global scale, to preserve and enhance the site’s natural and architectural heritage and to open a pathway to the mountain for Montrealers – as well as a pathway to the future for humankind.
