  • Employment Resources Open or Close

    Employment is one the ways in which residents can live a fruitful life and because of this productive employment and decent work are key objectives of a person's life plan. Meaningful work is particularly important for newly arrived immigrants, it brings people together and binds society with a common thread. According to statistics Canada, 46% of new immigrants listed finding adequate employment as the greatest difficulty they were faced with upon arriving in Canada. Information about employment, pay and workers’ rights is often hard to find. With that in mind NDGCC’s resource page for employment includes a directory of services related to employment in and around NDG as well useful links to work related websites and answers to often asked questions.

  • Resource Guide - Health Open or Close

    The importance of health is parallel to none; it affects our bodies, minds and communities. Because health has a huge impact on well-being, efficiency and performance when we are healthy we are better families, employees and citizens. Canada’s universal healthcare policy reflects this idea and guarantees to meet each Canadian’s health needs. Unfortunately such a sizeable healthcare system can be complicated and confusing to navigate. The NDG community council has put together a directory of health services available in the borough as well as an FAQ section to answer some general question about the healthcare system here in Québec. 

    Included in this section is a rubrique concerning families with children 0 - 5 years. The sections contains information regarding pregnancy, birth, and post-partum resources.

    L’Initiative montréalaise de soutien au développement social local is a joint program of Centraide of Greater Montreal, the City of Montreal and the Montreal Public Health Department. It aims to improve the quality of life and living conditions of the people of Montreal by financially supporting neighbourhood round tables. These round tables coordinate, in their respective neighbourhoods, the work of partners who belong to different networks (community, municipal, educational, etc.) and operate in different areas of intervention (youth, mental health, food security, etc.). The Coalition montréalaise des tables de quartier, an association of 29 neighbourhood round tables, one in each neighbourhood or borough, is also a partner in the initiative. Centraide’s contribution accounts for a little over 50% of the funding provided by this initiative.
