Welfare Rights Committee of South-West Montreal (WRC)

Table of Contents 


The Welfare Rights Committee of South-West Montreal is a citizen organisation based in Point St-Charles that works for the personal and collective empowerment of people living in poverty through education, active involvement, mobilisation and organizing.

Following a model that promotes people taking charge of their own representation and finding their own voice, the Welfare Rights Committee works in close association with its French speaking counterpart, the Comité des sans emploi des Pointe Saint-Charles (CSE) WRC provides an individual information and advocacy service on welfare issues as well as a range of activities.

WRC and its partner organisations are also pro-active in campaigns and initatives promoting legislative change and public policies directed at developping social justice and dignity for all.
