About Côte-des-Neiges

Where diversity is a strength

A neighbourhood of newcomers, students and large institutions (universities, hospitals, etc.), Côte-des-Neiges is one of Montreal’s most populated neighbourhoods. Its strong social and cultural diversity translate into both great potential and a great challenge when it comes to getting people to come together around common goals. The inclusion of newcomers in their new society, access to decent housing, and poverty are core issues for this neighbourhood. Côte-des-Neiges wants to inspire other neighbourhoods by giving everyone a voice to improve people’s living conditions.

Measuring progress right from the start

Côte-des-Neiges is chosen

Côte-des-Neiges is chosen to receive intensive CIP support to begin a major transformation in how it works collectively. The neighbourhood wants to focus on better-thought-out and more effective actions that have specific and measurable goals. The neighbourhood’s stakeholders agree that the priorities are housing, social inclusion, and problems related to poverty.
