Energizing Greater Montreal
one neighborhood at a time
In 2006, Centraide of Greater Montreal, the Direction régionale de santé publique de Montréal, and the City of Montreal partnered with the Coalition montréalaise des Tables de quartier to support the collaborative efforts of neighbourhood roundtables.
As part of this agreement, Centraide contributes to Montreal’s neighbourhood roundtables and to the Coalition montréalaise des tables de quartier, which provides leadership for the project. Additionally, Centraide contributes to five local roundtables in Laval and on the South Shore that are not part of the Montreal agreement.
A model unique in the word, made in Montreal
These neighbourhood roundtables include as many stakeholders as possible from various backgrounds: residents first and foremost but also representatives from the community, cultural, economic, education, public security and municipal sectors.
Together, they are implementing a variety of actions to improve living conditions for neighbourhood residents.
In this video, author Danny Laferrière explains how a neighbourhood roundtable works.
Collective projects driven by neighbourhood roundtables
The Esprit de quartier podcast highlights community projects driven by neighbourhood roundtables. Its four episodes explore highly topical themes: gentrification and urban development, food security, the environment, and community life. Through interviews with people from about ten initiatives in eight Montreal neighbourhoods, host Joakim Lemieux from the Coalition montréalaise des Tables de quartier (CMTQ) invites the public to join her on reflecting about social inequalities in Montreal and about possible solutions.
