With the collaboration of professors Alexandre Lebel and Jean Dubé, we obtained research funding thanks to the Knowledge Synthesis grants on mobility and public transport offered by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada - SSHRC. Our research project is entitled: "Ending Car Dependence: An Exploratory Literature Review".

Thanks to the SSHRC knowledge synthesis grants received, and with the help of research assistants Pierre-Paul Audate and Maxime Chamberland, we will be able to examine and synthesize existing knowledge as well as guide the development of decision on urban and rural mobility in Canada.

Today is the big day of the end-of-year plenary of the laboratory-essay for graduates of the professional master's degree in spatial planning and regional development. This year, the research focused on the territory of the city of Lévis. Several members of the management team of the City of Lévis, including the mayor, Mr. Gilles Lehouillier, attended this presentation and commented on or questioned the work.

I would like to thank and congratulate the members of my team (Maxime Chamberland, Olivier Deschênes, Théo Legay and Anaëlle Paulet) who allowed me to have my first experience of supervising a laboratory-essay. This brilliant team has published an article for the 2020-2021 edition of the Perspecto magazine. Their very comprehensive final report presents the analysis of ecomobility in the city of Lévis. Finally, they created a quiz on sustainable mobility aimed at popularizing this concept for Lévisiens. In the process, in addition to congratulating all the teams who presented very good laboratory tests, I would like to sincerely thank Ms. Marie-Lise Côté, Director of the sustainable mobility office at the City of Lévis for her support throughout of the year.

Now in post for several months, I teach the courses AME-6501 Transport and territorial dynamics in the fall semester and AME-6059 Implementation of sustainable modes of transport in the winter semester in the Master of Territorial Planning and Regional Development (M.ATDR). I have yet to teach in the classroom with our masters students. Everything happens remotely on Zoom. It's not always easy, but we're doing our best. At least I had the chance to meet our cohort of doctoral students in the flesh at the beginning of the fall semester as part of the doctoral seminar of my colleague Alexandre Lebel. I also supervise a student doing a master's thesis and a doctoral student.

After an intercontinental move against the backdrop of a pandemic, compulsory confinement and screening for COVID-19, I have finally completed my activities and commitments related to mobil.LAB from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and I am starting now planning the 2020-2021 school year at ÉSAD. Difficult adaptation to the new reality of online courses. In addition to preparing 3 new courses, I must also approach distance learning for the first time, at least for the fall session, because my courses will not be face-to-face ...

I will give the following courses:

Fall 2020

AME-6501 Transport et dynamiques territoriales

AME-6601 Essai-laboratoire d’aménagement et de développement I
