Le Chantier in Saint-Michel - Tackling Poverty and Social Inclusion

Vivre Saint-Michel en Santé, a community revitalization initiative in the Montreal neighbourhood of Saint-Michel, has created a new offshoot organization to work specifically on projects that will address poverty and social exclusion. Launched in March 2003, Le Chantier de revitalization urbane et social (Le Chantier) is helping create a sense of optimism among the residents of this densely-populated, culturally diverse part of Montreal.
