The Council for Anglophone Magdalen Islanders (CAMI) is a regional association that has been assisting the English-speaking community of the Magdalen Islands for over 30 years.
CAMI’s programming is built on core funding through the Department of Canadian Heritage Official Language Minority Community program. The development and delivery of programs and services promote and facilitate the active participation and integration of English-speakers in the Islands and in Québec society as a whole. The core funding received from Canadian Heritage is the foundation of the organization, helping leverage the additional financial and in-kind support required to build sound infrastructure for an effective community development organization.
Over the past 24 years, Family Ties has become firmly rooted in the community it serves. People of all ages take part in the various programs, volunteer their time, make donations and, as members, take part in the democratic life of the organization.
The contributions made by our volunteers and members are especially valued and we are proud of their accomplishments, both individually and as a team.
The West Island LGBTQ2+ Centre is the only LGBTQ2+ resource in the West Island region of Montreal. The Centre has a series of programs that cater to different demographics within the community.
Founded in 2011, the LGBTQ Youth Centre was the inaugural program of the Centres, and was aimed at youth between the ages of 14 and 21. The ages were changed when the Centre’s programs amalgamated.
Support group integrated with Interligne crisis line
Interligne is a first response centre that provides help and information to those concerned with sexual orientation and gender diversity. Because our services are accessible 24 hours/day, we are able to offer support to the LGBTQ+ communities, their friends and family and to service providers in the health, education and social service sectors. Through our outreach and awareness activities, we also promote greater openness to LGBTQ+ realities.
