ICPC participated virtually in a clinical-scientific activity on the sexual exploitation of minors

On June 16, the ICPC are pleased to have participated virtually in a clinical-scientific activity on the sexual exploitation of minors, organised by the Institut universitaire Jeunes en difficulté du CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal. The conference was an opportunity to discuss promising and effective practices in this area as well as the financial costs of sexual exploitation. A review of the SPHÈRES project team’s 5-year experience as a model for integrated and concerted action was presented during the webcast. Finally, future perspectives on sexual exploitation intervention were discussed.

ICPC participation in an international online concertation on July 14

The ICPC took part in a forum on Racism, Antiracism and Indigenous Issues, organized by the IRIPI

On March 17 and 18, the ICPC had the pleasure of attending the forum on Racism, Antiracism and Indigenous Issues, organized by the Institut de Recherche sur l’Intégration Professionnelle des Immigrants (IRIPI). This forum aimed to advocate collective mobilization by addressing manifestations of racism. It also aimed to shed light on the progress and blind spots that persist in many areas.

Several presentations were made, providing information on Aboriginal issues in various settings: schools, CEGEPs, universities and workplace. Good practices as well as guides for intervention and research in Aboriginal environments were also shared.

Thank you for the invitation.

RESAL’s online discussion panel on the place of youth in the city

*Please note that the discussion will be held in French.

The Réseau d'échanges et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL), of which ICPC is a member, is proud to announce its third annual colloquium focusing on the place of youth in the city.

This year, due to social distancing measures, the RESAL is offering a new formula of three webinars that will lead to a face-to-face colloquium in the spring of 2021, if the situation allows. These webinars are intended to foster discussions between key players in violence prevention in Montreal on the following themes:

  1. Sports, arts and recreation
  2. Knowledge and culture
  3. Employment and housing

RÉSAL invites you to its first online discussion panel on the place of youth in the city, and more specifically on how sports, arts and recreation can act as protective factors for young people.

We would like to offer a space for discussion in order to highlight various sports, arts and recreation-related projects that have a positive impact on the lives of young Montrealers.

Three panelists will be presenting their projects:

The following questions will be addressed in particular:

  • What led you to define your project to meet the needs of youth and what needs does it address?
  • How has this project created a space for youth in the city?
  • What success factors were observed in terms of harmonious sharing in the public space?
