ICPC organised a foresight activity

In line with the 2020-2030 Climate Plan and the implementation of Montréal’s Resilient City Strategy, the City of Montreal has decided to support the creation of resilience centres within its territory. This initiative, carried out through the Tandem programme, aims to equip communities to deal with issues of social justice, urban security, and climate change that can have a lasting impact on them.

In this context, the ICPC was mandated to provide methodological support to the project leaders and the team in charge of piloting the implementation of resilience poles in 5 sectors of the municipality: Ahuntsic-Cartierville/St-Laurent, Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Saint-Léonard, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension and Rivière-Des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles.

With this in mind, on April 29, the ICPC met with the resilience agents, the pilot team, for a foresight activity in the context of the development of community resilience poles.

The purpose of this activity was to better understand the implementation of resilience clusters and the resilience agents over time, to put them in a situation where they were faced with different prospective scenarios, and to define the first milestones for the intervention of the clusters in the short, medium and long term.

We would like to thank all the resilience officers for their participation.

ICPC’s participation in a webinar on the place of youth in the city

On February 4, the Réseau d'échange et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL), of which ICPC is a member, offered a webinar on the place of youth in the city, more specifically on how knowledge and culture can act as protective factors for youth.

The RÉSAL opened a space for discussion to highlight different projects related to knowledge and culture that have a positive impact on the lives of Montreal youth in terms of violence prevention.

The invited panelists included Lucie Caillère, Executive Director of Projet Harmonie, Kémy St-Éloy, Community Coordinator, Prevention Pointe-de-l'Île, Katrina Journeau, Executive Director and co-founder of Prima Danse, and Karine Lavoie, Executive Director of Cirque Hors Piste.
