CONCERTATION: Westhaven Neighbourhood Committee

Comité de voisinage Westhaven
The vision of the Westhaven Neighbourhood Committee is to create a lively, vibrant and integrated environment in which diverse discussions are initiated, goals are set and relevant connections are made through mobilization and partnerships within the Westhaven community for the purpose of developing projects that improve the quality of life of the neighbourhood and Notre-Dame de Grace as a whole.

The committee’s mission is to act as a catalyst for social and economic development by facilitating consultations, encouraging discussions and supporting residents and those who have a vested interest in the Westhaven community at large in the planning and implementation of projects and activities. As a catalyst, the committee aims to empower residents and partners within the Westhaven community, by providing an initial support and creating a positive space in which they can further build a community which they envision.
