“As the Quebec government’s economic update approaches, I am asking it to make homelessness one of its priorities. We must give predictability to community organizations, social workers and people experiencing homelessness. We have to get out of piecemeal logic and stop moving vulnerable people from one resource to another, ”says Mr.me Plant. Over the next four years, the city’s mayor wants to double the investments dedicated to roaming. They will drop from 3 million to 6 million per year.
