ATD Fourth World has local partners in many regions of Canada. A permanent team located in Montreal coordinates their work from the ATD Fourth World house.
We run projects in under-resourced neighborhoods (Street Libraries, Festival of Learning), projects aimed at encouraging the participation of people living in poverty (Peoples Universities, Merging Knowledge Projects), and advocacy campaigns aimed at influencing public opinion and government policy (law committee 112, October 17, World Day for Overcoming Poverty), as well as other actions in Québec.
ATD Fourth World has been present in Quebec since 1982.
