NETWORKING AND CONCERTED ACTIONS
The NDG Community Council works in partnership with a multitude of community organisations seeking concertation on projects & funding opportunities. This allows the Council to work as a collective with other organisations and to reinforce positive outcomes for the residents we ultimately serve. Each table, committee or working group has their own set of goals, all with one common outcome in mind: to improve the quality of life in the neighbourhood! Adding to the numerous local tables, the Council also participates in different ways on several regional regroupements such as the CMTQ and the RIOCM.
NDG LOCAL TABLES & COMMITTEES & COALITIONS
PRIORITY SECTOR COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVE. NDG’s four priority sectors face many common issues ranging from food insecurity to poor housing and social isolation, and require consistent attention. The approach to community work in each sector varies depending on the organisations present and the funding available, but to date there has been no common space for the four sectors to ensure a balance, exchange best practices and share resources. To better monitor the 4 sectors, the Council formed a transitionnal committee to propose an intervention plan based on the work over the last year. The proposal aims to bring together individual reflections and expertise to benefit all sectors, which in practice means creating a single forum for exchange coordinated by an Action Table for the four sectors.
