Fédération de l'habitation coopérative du Québec (FHCQ-FECHIMM), in collaboration with the Centre social d'aide aux immigrants, invites directors of housing cooperatives and managers of NPOs and HLMs to a conference on the theme of the integration of newcomers in the various tenures of social and community housing.

The activity is intended to be a space for exchange and networking between the world of housing and that of support for immigrants. The conference will provide an overview of the current situation. It will be an opportunity to identify obstacles, but also promising practices with regard to the objective of the project underway since 2019.
