Development Project – New Construction
After the acquisition of the land in 2015, the development project continued to enter its final stage: the construction of the building. While working with its partners, Projets Autochtones du Québec, formerly lodged thanks to the City of Montreal, became the owner of a new building during the year.
As for the construction site, we had 19 site meetings (every fortnight) with the professionals who supported us well in front of this big project: Ruccolo & Faubert architects, Blenda construction and Atelier Habitation Montreal. The initial schedule was deferred several times, to enter our new premises in May 2016. Note that the site went well.
We also involved the members. We held four meetings during the year with PAQ users to explain the mission and objectives of the Transition House project: 70 people were reached. We also met with 25 residents of the shelter (who had already completed the Housing Application Form) to present the transition room accommodation and services contract. We made presentations on the service and accommodation contract in Ivirtiviq (20 people), the Montreal Urban Service Center (CDRHPN) and Chez Doris (6 people).
