Problem solving activity in Saint-Michel

The ICPC held an online meeting for exchange with stakeholders from the Montreal Borough of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension to conduct a problem-solving activity related to certain urban safety issues experienced at François-Perreault Park.

The problem-solving approach, from a social development perspective, aims to coordinate the efforts of local stakeholders around a collectively defined urban safety issue. This approach therefore allows this group of participants to work together on common objectives in order, ultimately, to develop courses of action and future solutions.
