Initiative montréalaise de soutien au développement social local

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.
