Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante announced today that the city is investing $7.2-million in 46 violence prevention projects by and for local youth.

The projects will be administered by community organizations including Saint-Michel’s Centre Lasallien, to receive $130,000 for an employment integration program for marginalized youth, the Makivik Corporation, to receive $750,000 to increase the number of social workers supporting Indigenous and Inuit youth on the streets, and Sun Youth, who will develop mentoring and sports programs for vulnerable youth, particularly young girls.
