AccèsLogis

The AccèsLogis Montréal program from Société d'habitation du Québec (SHQ) promotes the pooling of public, community and private resources in order to create affordable community housing for low- or modest-income households and for people with special housing needs. The program does this through three major parts:

Part 1

It targets permanent housing projects for low or modest income households (families, single people, independent seniors, independent disabled people).

Part 2

It targets permanent housing projects with services (examples: meals, home support, housekeeping) for elderly people with a slight loss of autonomy.

Part 3

It targets temporary or permanent housing projects with services for people with special housing needs such as:

  • temporary or transitional housing for people who are going through a process of social reintegration and building autonomy

  • emergency accommodation (rooms), such as shelters for people experiencing homelessness, women victims of violence or people in situations of vulnerability

  • temporary accommodation for women or young victims of domestic violence.
