Ready to welcome anyone who wishes from 8:30 p.m. to 5:45 a.m., for a maximum of 25 places.

The objective of the Halte-Chaleur CDN is to provide a place of respite for the population itinerant during periods of intense cold. La Halte is a place with a high threshold accessibility. Halte-Chaleur is open to everyone. The main objective is to reach out to those who are the most vulnerable and in a situation of chronic, occasional or hidden homelessness in order to promote social integration. To do so, the Halte welcomes individuals regardless of their level of intoxication or their psychosocial difficulties. The approach is inspired by harm reduction through the willingness to accompany without judgment. It is by building a bond of trust in a place where listening is at the forefront that we will be able to support people in difficulty to exit the streets.

For any questions, you can contact the Halte-Chaleur CDN team at 514-297-7267 between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., 7/7, or at the following address: [email protected]
