Galvanizing action in Greater Montreal
one neighbourhood at a time
In every Greater Montreal neighbourhood, citizens and organizations are joining forces to find solutions to the problems they face in their area. Neighbourhood round tables mobilize communities around issues related to housing, food, education, transportation, urban planning, and more, galvanizing action in Greater Montreal one neighbourhood at a time.
A model unique to the world, made in Montreal
These neighbourhood round tables bring together as many stake holders as possible from various backgrounds, including first and foremost residents, as well as representatives from the cultural, economic, education, and public security sectors, among others.
Together, they establish a full picture of the neighbourhood to determine the key issues and challenges and agree on the top priorities to address.
In this video, author Danny Laferrière explains how a neighbourhood roundtable works.
A unique partnership model to support neighbourhood round tables
In 2006, Centraide of Greater Montreal, the Montreal Regional Public Health Department, and the City of Montreal joined forces with the Coalition montréalaise des tables de quartier to provide funding and support for the collaborative efforts of neighbourhood round tables.
Within the framework of this agreement, Centraide contributes to 30 neighbourhood round tables and the Coalition montréalaise des tables de quartier, which provides leadership on the project. Additionally, Centraide contributes to five local tables in Laval and on the South Shore that are not part of the Montreal agreement.
