Today, November 14th, at 1:00pm, is the official inauguration ceremony for Resilience Montreal.
In the presence of the Mayor of Montréal, Valérie Plante, the Minister Responsible for Indigenous Affairs, Sylvie D’Amours and the Mayor of Westmount, Christina M. Smith, the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal and Nazareth Community invite you to the inauguration of Resilience Montreal’s temporary location.
“I am delighted with the upcoming opening of the Resilience Montréal day center in the Cabot Square area, where our teams have been working for several months with some thirty partners to respond to the crisis that has afflicted the area since Open Door moved to a new location. Thank you to the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal and the Nazareth Community who are working hard, with our teams, for this upcoming opening that will meet the needs of our most vulnerable fellow citizens,” says the Mayor of Montréal, Valérie Plante.
“In less than a year since the departure of the Open Door Shelter from the Cabot Square–area, 14 members of our community have hopelessly died,” says Nakuset, the Executive Director of the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. “We won’t stand idly by and watch this happen any longer. We also ask that the public help us find a more permanent location, so that we may continue to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.”
