International aid organization steps in to help Montreal homeless

The closure of a prominent Montreal homeless shelter has directly affected the city’s urban Indigenous population.

To fill that gap an international aid organization has stepped in until more resources are made available from the municipal and provincial governments.

Among other things, Medecins du Monde is dispensing medical care to the city’s most vulnerable.
