Spotlight on Black run Organizations in Montreal

In lieu of a piece of writing this week, we have attached some resources to support the Black communities of Montreal (Tiohtià:ke).



First we have attached afrobiz.ca that categorizes Black owned businesses by location for ease of navigation. Below is the link to their ‘Montreal’ page.

Next, is the link to The Centre for Community Organizations (COCo)’s website.


COCo’s mission as described in the About Us page, “is to help build a more socially just world by supporting the health and well-being of community organizations in Québec. Through supporting

organizational development, offering training, disseminating resources, producing research, and by

strengthening links between nonprofit organizations, COCo helps to promote the vitality of the community sector in the province."

Below is the link to their article listing local Black run charities that are fighting police violence and are building up Black communities:
