Government of Canada provides support to youth and families in Montreal
“The Government of Canada knows that building a safer society begins in our homes and in our streets. We also know that strong, community-led programs that make use of evidence-based models have proven effective in crime reduction. The Côte-des-Neiges Black Community Association has been an incredible partner working with government and other non-profits to strengthen families in the community. The monies we are providing today to expand the Strengthening Families Program means that even more at risk youth in the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and surrounding municipalities and boroughs will be given the tools needed to help lead to a better future for them and their families. Today’s announcement is a significant investment in the youth and future of this community.”
- Anthony Housefather, Member of Parliament for Mount Royal
“Along with our partners, the African Canadian Development and Prevention Network, we have been delivering the Strengthening Families Program for over 12 years. This new project will help increase our capacity to continue to support black families and extend our expertise across various communities in Montreal. Our organization, with the support of federal and local partners, will connect more families to public and community resources, like health care and social services.”
- Tiffany Callender, Executive Director, Côte-des-Neiges Black Community Association
From April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the Government of Canada supported 77 community-based crime prevention projects across Canada.
The National Crime Prevention Strategy provides national leadership on cost-effective ways to prevent and reduce crime among at-risk populations and vulnerable communities by intervening to mitigate the underlying factors that put individuals at risk of offending.
Up to $44.5 million has been committed in 2018-2019 to support NCPS in the implementation and evaluation of crime prevention programs.
