Mission and objectives

The Citizen Action Committee of Verdun (CACV) is a not-for-profit organization, active in Verdun since 1975. We support the most disadvantaged members of our community in the improvement of their living conditions. We also promote their aspirations, particularly in the areas of housing and changes to the neighbourhood. Our approach favours empowerment.

We have developed a range of activities and programs which aim to…

  • support people in improving their material conditions;
  • provide access to information;
  • orient residents towards appropriate community and institutional resources;
  • promote dialogue, the development of critical thinking, and awareness in the community.
