For the implementation of the Canal Plan, the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region has mandated a dedicated team, including several project leaders within the Urban Development Corporation (SAU). This team is responsible for the operational implementation of the Canal Plan.

The Canal Plan’s ​​700-hectare operational zone, 300 hectares of which is public land, is one of the intervention zones of the SAU-MSI within which it has limited control over land. The SAU-MSI acts in two ways: either by playing the role of coordinator and facilitator of public and private projects, or by initiating and implementing projects. Since the start of its activities, the team has been involved in around a hundred projects of very different natures.

To mention just a few examples which illustrate this diversity:
