Support for families in housing co-ops

About this project

Steps to a diverse activity program

Since its creation in September 2016, the Comité multisectoriel Initiative Montréal-Est has held many meetings to identify and implement intervention strategies in the community.

Steps have started with two housing co-ops to get a better idea of what agencies regularly do and to organize a variety of activities for residents experiencing poverty and vulnerability.

The Corporation de développement communautaire and the two housing co-ops signed a memorandum of understanding to run activities in the community.

An activity room was put at the disposal of all agencies that work in the community.

Occasional activities have been organized to reach out to the children, adolescents and adults who live at the co-ops.

A diverse activity program for all age groups is now available.

The work of the Comité multisectoriel Initiative Montréal-Est has led to the creation of a diverse activity program for all age groups.
