What is the Comité Parents?
The Comité Parents was formed by the Table de concertation jeunesse de Lachine (TCJL) in June 2011 after it was recognized that despite the efforts of individual organizations, it was difficult to reach parents. The mandate of the Comité Parents is to find unique ways to reach parents of children ages 0 to 17. In the winter of 2013, the Table de concertation petite enfance de Dorval-Lachine joined the Comité, helping enable the Comité to connect with toddlers and their families.
Today, the Comité Parents includes representatives from two circles—community organizations as well as institutions—all collaborating to address matters that directly impact parents and speak to their current concerns.
In the two years since it was established, the Comité Parents has been involved with over 20 meetings
