Illumi and environmental responsibility

Illumi takes measures to be an environmentally responsible citizen.


Hydroelectricity is used to light up Illumi’s 30,000 structures in what is the largest theme park of its kind in the world.

LED Technology

Energy-wise, LED technology combined with low electricity consumption makes this an extremely energy-efficient event.

Maritime shipping containers

Illumi uses recycled maritime shipping containers for its scenic structures and reuses them from one edition to the next.

Free shuttle bus

The Société de Transport de Laval (STL) is providing a free shuttle bus service back and forth from the Montmorency metro station to the entrance to the Illumi site for walking and mini train experience ticketholders.

Energy consumption

Illumi is considerably reducing its energy consumption this year. The total amount of space dedicated to the Warm-Up areas has been halved because more than 50% of visitors will be in their vehicles or aboard a mini train wagon during their journey.

New formula

This new formula offering walking, drive-through and mini train experiences will not result in more vehicles being on the premises compared to the 2019 edition as some will be driven along the route rather than being parked.

Number of vehicules

The estimated number of vehicles that will complete the event is comparable to a single day’s traffic on Highway 15 (adjacent to the Illumi site).

Electric car reward

A special reward is available to the drivers of electric, plug-in hybrid or hydrogen-battery powered vehicles identified with a green licence plate.

Carbon Credit

For the car experience, Illumi has committed to pay an amount per vehicle for the GHG compensation. The amount collected will be used to help the GHG reduction projects in the city of Laval.
