About LaSalle

Where needs are growing in a changing territory

Located in the southwest sector of the island and bordered by the St. Lawrence River, LaSalle has some of Montreal’s most populated areas. Vulnerable families can be found scattered throughout the territory, where poverty is both hidden and diffuse. The result: LaSalle is rarely seen as a neighbourhood with significant needs. Added to this reality are demographic changes, i.e., many newcomers and an aging population, that have put increased pressure on insufficient resources. The neighbourhood is counting on growing collaboration to meet the population’s increasing needs.

Timeline

The neighbourhood's target project: “Working together for food security”

  The goal of this project is to better align food security services to help people become more self-sufficient when it comes to food. To achieve this goal, projects will reinforce the skills of families (cooking and diet), community agencies (support for individuals) and the community (collective work).
