The History of the WMA

Founded in 1908 to promote sound civic administration, the Westmount Municipal Association (WMA) is a community-based organization independent of the municipal administration. The WMA is run by volunteers and has historically operated as a non-partisan community  link between citizens and City Hall. This aspect of its work continues today. During recent years, the WMA has been involved in helping citizens navigate their way through some of Westmount’s most enduring issues: traffic, parking, questions involving the bike path, and zoning problems. The WMA was very active in working toward the de-merger of Westmount from Montreal and now expects to be very involved with regard to the establishment of the McGill University Hospital Campus (MUHC) and its impact on the city.
