The NDG Community Council’s Quality of Life conference is slated for May 13 from 9 am to 3 pm in the St. Raymond Community Centre and everybody is invited, assuming you pre-register through this link here.

“We are aiming to have a diversity of people and issues represented,” states the event’s Facebook page.

The aim of the bilingual event is to gather groups, institutions and citizens together to learn more about what the needs are in the neighbourhood.

Ideas and resources will be pooled while various themes related to quality of life, such as housing, food and security, will be discussed.

There will be an effort to accommodate people with whatever they may need so as to “maximize your involvement in this event.”

To read more about this event and how it is part of the triennial NDG Strategic Plan, please read my article in the Montreal Gazette. 

As the NDG Community Council's executive director Halah Al-Ubaidi says in that article, “The portrait of the neighbourhood is changing so fast, and we need to cope with that. There are big changes in N.D.G.”
