In December 2019, Énergir and the Fédération québécoise des municipalités (FQM) signed an agreement on the coordinated management of public spaces for urban infrastructure networks. In summary, the agreement provides for:
- A lump sum payment for 2.5% of the value of the work involved in implementing and improving the gas network (projects which did not require prior approval by the Régie de l'Énergie).
- The equitable sharing of costs in relocating gas installations.
- Énergir provides a roadway performance guarantee of four (4) years following completion of the work.
- The provision that, where possible, Énergir undertakes to limit interventions on roadways that have been subject to a major intervention by municipalities within the past five (5) years.
