Community involvement and participation

Our business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday inclusive.

In keeping with its mission, the organization offers services and carries out activities and projects that reflect its involvement in the community (involvement and participation in various tables and consultative bodies).

Its actions can be grouped into four categories:

Help and mutual aid for families

Children and families

The center contributes to the creation of favorable environments through the "Milieux de vies favorables - petite enfance" program, formerly known as the Système intégré en périnatalité et pour la petite enfance (SIPPE). It provides a home-based support service for families with at least one child aged 0-5. This service provides mothers with respite and tools to better manage their daily lives. Parenting skills training and psychosocial support are also at the heart of this service.

Summer Day Camp

The day camp is dedicated to adolescents and young people (aged 8-12) from various communities, to encourage their cognitive and social development, as well as their blossoming within the neighborhood. The program includes physical and artistic activities, workshops on staying in school, museum visits, discussion workshops and more. Facilitators are paid by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). This kind of job gives them their first experience of the job market. Since employment is one of the first steps towards integration, we can say that it is also an activity that supports cultural communities.

Lunch talk

The Lunch & Learn is a discussion workshop on a chosen topic designed to break isolation, foster social relationships and encourage empowerment among women. The CFHI's role is to encourage women to reflect on certain societal issues affecting them, with a view to working together to find solutions for their personal development. Déjeuner-causerie offers another opportunity for women from cultural communities to integrate into their host society.

Brisolement (activities for seniors)

Seniors are also part of our service offering. Café-rencontres - exchange workshops, writing workshops, painting workshops - physical activities: dance, gardening, board games, collective kitchens, as well as intergenerational activities to break seniors' isolation and enhance their experience and contribution to the host society.

Integration and cultural communities

Troubleshooting and food safety

Referencing service
