New Head Office and program facility for the
For 32 years, the Cote des Neiges Black Community Association has been an invaluable resource to all Montrealers, especially for us who are Black or who are from the Caribbean.
For years they have been providing a range of services, including teen leadership, seniors, steelband, and their afterschool homework programs from their headquarters at 6999 Cote des Neiges.
Through maintaining a vibrant and viable organization… one of the longest serving and most consistent in our community. Now to meet the changing dynamics of those that they serve, the leadership of the CDNBCA is ready to move to two new locations.
Their new head office is at the Appleton Center located at 6585 Cote des Neiges and the new programming facility at a secondary location, the Nelson Mandela Pavilion, just behind the Bill Durnan Arena on Vezina St. in Cote des Neiges.
The new head office and pavilion are expected to increase visibility and accessibility for users of the organization’s services.
“The opening of the new Nelson Mandela Pavilion and the relocation of the head office to the Appleton Center is an important step towards realizing our goal of expanding our service reach,” said Tiffany Callender, Executive Director. “The new locations will be the first in many important changes for the organization in 2015, in relating to our clients’ needs and how the organization is responding to them.”
The organization has recently started operations in the newly renovated park chalet renamed the Nelson Mandela Pavilion in the Mandela Park on Victoria Avenue. The majority of their longest-running activities are now being offered at the Pavilion.
The new head office, which includes administrative offices, educational/cultural spaces, and numerous multi-purpose rooms, will be the organization’s primary office starting in January 2015.
CDNBCA will host an official launch for the Nelson Mandela Pavilion on Wednesday December 3, to allow community members to tour the new facility. The event will be attended by the borough mayor, Russell Copeman, along with other municipal, provincial, and federal officials.
