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:
It targets permanent housing projects for low or modest income households (families, single people, independent seniors, independent disabled people).
It targets permanent housing projects with services (examples: meals, home support, housekeeping) for elderly people with a slight loss of autonomy.
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.
