The West Island Warming Centre (Halte-Chaleur) is changing its name to reflect its new role in combating homelessness. The shelter, which opened Dec, 1, 2020, will now be called the West Island Transition Centre (Halte-Transition). Managed by Action Jeunesse de l’Ouest-de-l’Île (AJOI), the shelter was used 972 times by 72 different people, where 86% of beneficiaries were male.

Previously, it could only accommodate between 10 to 15 people. Great news for the West Island community. Read more...
