Feds support three Montreal community centres

Feds support three Montreal community centres

MONTREAL — The federal government has announced it will spend $33.8 million towards construction of three new community centres in Montreal.

Two of the new facilities will be built to carbon-neutral standards, stated a release.

The Parc-Extension Community Centre will include a variety of multi-purpose spaces such as meeting rooms, common areas, a gym, a community kitchen, offices for local organizations and a rooftop community garden.

The three-storey, carbon-neutral Saint-Michel Community House will feature an industrial kitchen as well as a multifunctional room.

The third project will provide a home for the community group Afrique au féminin. Renovations to the facility at 805 rue Durocher in Montreal will include the construction of a third floor, an extension to the north side of the building, a green roof, new windows, improved insulation and new mechanical and electrical systems. The paved areas will also be transformed into green spaces.

The new location will enable the organization to serve the low-income population of northern Parc-Extension.

Funding for the projects will come from the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program. Afrique au féminin is contributing $1.58 million and La Table de quartier Parc-Extension and Saint-Michel, Quartier de l’innovation sociale are contributing $16.6 million and $10.4 million respectively.

Rose Ndjel, executive director of Afrique au féminin, commented, “It goes without saying that situations of exclusion and poverty in Montreal and elsewhere continue to be exacerbated by the challenges we face, despite the fact that Afrique au féminin plays a crucial role in demonstrating its importance and its deep roots with the citizens of Parc-Extension in order to act in solidarity to improve and deliver its services.”
