Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy NETWORK

Background of the organization:

Established in 2008, The Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy NETWORK (the NETWORK) is focused on improving the quality of Aboriginal people living in the greater Montreal area. It functions as a collaboration platform where government agencies, including the police, community organizations, Indigenous groups, and citizens come together to undertake cross-cutting research and training, and to co-create effective strategies and projects.

 Grant description:

The Network’s Cabot Square Project brings together organizations from the community sector and all levels of government to create a coordinated, collaborative approach to improve the well-being of homeless Inuit in the neighbourhood.

The Foundation’s grant will be used to strengthen the NETWORK’s learning from its Cabot Square Project—which addresses Aboriginal homelessness—and to expand upon this approach in other Montreal neighbourhoods.
