A LARGE NETWORK OF COMMUNITY SPIRIT
In Mercier-Est, different obstacles (highways, industrial parks) have fragmented the neighbourhood and made it difficult for people to access local social and community services.
To stay connected with residents, the Mercier-Est Network project is helping agencies, institutions, businesses and citizens develop a reflex of caring, support and solidarity towards the territory’s vulnerable and isolated populations.
Better knowledge of community resources, stronger links between local stakeholders, better contact with people who rarely use services, and increased agency outreach beyond borders are what make the Mercier-Est Network an innovative project that breaks the isolation of residents and strengthens the neighbourhood’s social fabric.
