Several businesses use good lighting practices in the Mont-Mégantic International Dark Sky Reserve.

The designation " Ami du ciel étoilé " (Dark Sky Friends) 

aims to highlight businesses combining their lighting needs with the protection of the night and the quality of life in the neighbourhood.  

Initially focused on along the Boulevard Bourque in Sherbrooke, an area where the impact of light pollution is significant, the designation will soon be expanded across the territory of the Dark Sky Reserve. 

Encourage these businesses that demonstrate that it is possible to provide good lighting while limiting light pollution.
