Forum on Homelessness

FORUM ON HOMELESSNESS 2014

“This event gave me a little spark and it is this spark that can do good to everyone if we spread it. Because essentially, deep down, we are all the same, we are all family.”

The 2014 Forum on Homelessness took place on June 12 at St. James the Apostle Church. This first edition was initiated by the Peter-McGill Community Council in order to encourage community involvement by offering a space for discussion and information on the reality of homeless people. The event was organized in partnership with 10 organizations and attracted more than 130 people.

How the idea of the Forum was born

Currently, the sense of belonging to the community is quite weak in Peter-McGill and, therefore, so is the level of participation of the district’s citizens and merchants in local dialogue on social issues.
However, homelessness has been identified as a major concern in the area but the existing resources unfortunately tend to be isolated from one another.

The idea of the Forum was born from a desire to create an event in which not only the various resources could finally meet each other in order to join forces and work together but also in which the community—the district’s residents, students, merchants and homeless people—could find information and share and exchange freely on the issues related to homelessness.
