The upcoming event, scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, starting at 6:30 p.m., will be hosted at the Paul-Mercier Library. This gathering offers a platform for young citizens to express their ideas and concerns, enhancing community engagement. Attendees can look forward to an inviting atmosphere with light snacks and door prizes. Please note that the deadline to register for this event is January 16. In addition, daycare services will be provided free of charge, although availability is limited. The overarching goal of this initiative is to focus on improving lives and reducing inequalities within the community, aligning with the city’s policy objectives.
The primary aim of Blainville’s forthcoming social development policy is to enhance the living conditions of its residents, known as Blainvilloises. The policy will focus on:
Improving Living Conditions: Addressing various aspects that contribute to the overall quality of life in Blainville.
Reducing Inequalities: Working in collaboration with public and community partners to tackle social and economic disparities within the city.
This policy represents a proactive step towards fostering a more equitable and thriving community. By actively involving its citizens in the policy-making process, the City of Blainville demonstrates its dedication to creating a future that resonates with and benefits all its residents.
Understanding the challenges faced by parents, Blainville offers complimentary daycare services during the event, highlighting the city’s dedication to inclusivity and accessibility. This thoughtful addition ensures that parents can participate without the worry of childcare.
