Campaign launch: "Montreal's Community Organizations: A World of People to Discover"



    MONTREAL, Oct. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, the RIOCM (Regroupement
intersectoriel des organismes communautaires de Montréal) is proud to launch
its visibility campaign "Montreal's Community Organizations: A World of People
to Discover!" with its full page announcement in this weeks' publication of
the Voir newspaper. There are approximately 600 community organizations in
Montreal mobilized in health and social services. Each year, these
organizations reach 400 000 people in the heart of the Metropolis's different
neighborhoods.
    This campaign is part of the October 23rd Community Action National
Visibility Day supported by Quebec National Assembly. On this occasion, the
RIOCM would like to highlight the contribution of the hundreds of autonomous
community organizations that work daily with Montrealers from divers origins,
with the youth, the women, the men, the families, the elders, with those who
are living with addiction issues, mental health issues or physical or
intellectual handicaps, and also those who are so often forgotten, the
marginalized and the economically impoverished.
    With the commitment of activists, administrators and employees, community
organizations contribute not only to strengthening communities and their
social fabric but also assist in consolidating the democratic vitality of
civil society. Their involvement in our society is priceless and deserves to
be better known and recognized by both Montrealers and the Government.
    The RIOCM would also like to take the opportunity to launch its contest
"Un monde à découvrir" which aims at highlighting and promoting the work of
the people and the community organizations engaged in improving the quality of
life for Montrealers and their communities. This contest is organized in
collaboration with the YMCA of Montreal, a member organization of the RIOCM
and details are available in the October 25th edition of the VOIR newspaper.
    Sébastien Rivard, the RIOCM's coordinator, invites all Montrealers to
discover the community organizations and the people who keep them bring them
to life!
