Transitioning towards a new public Wi-Fi for Pointe-Claire

During the week of June 19, Pointe-Claire citizens will have access to the new version of the City’s public Wi-Fi. It will be accessible in most municipal facilities, including the City’s Town Hall, Public Library, Olive-Urquhart Sports Centre, and Stewart Hall Cultural Centre.

While this transition to the new network is underway, visitors may be without public Wi-Fi. We apologize for any inconvenience you may encounter.

This new network will allow citizens to seamlessly connect to the Wi-Fi without having to ask the front desk or reception for an access code. To connect to the City’s new public Wi-Fi, a new page will open in your browser, and you will need to click on ‘PubliqueVPC’ in the Wi-Fi section of your device’s settings. You will then need to accept the terms and conditions. This process will have to be repeated at every visit in order to connect to the public network.

Wi-Fi terms and conditions

  • You are responsible for keeping your password confidential, as well as all activities performed under your username and password.
