With our lease at the RCA building in St-Henri coming to an end, an opportunity presented itself to rent offices in the wonderful Maison Parent-Roback, a stone's throw from Metro Parc. So we jumped at it!
We left St. Henri and the historic RCA building on January 12 where we were happy for almost five years and moved to a new home.
If you have tried to get in touch with us during the last month and we have not responded, please excuse us. Our email server was down for a short time over the holidays. Our telephone system will be up and running in a week or so. Luckily we can keep our original phone number: 514-483-1846, the one we have had for over 25 years. In the meantime you can now email us or message us on Facebook. Your patience is much appreciated.
La Maison Parent-Roback, located on rue Jean-Talon in the heart of Parc extension, is owned by a collective of 11 women's groups. Through its members, it reaches more than 1,200 local groups who, in turn, connect with hundreds of thousands of women across Quebec and Canada. So we knew we wanted to be here.
So here we are!
Our new address is 461 Jean-Talon West, room 430, Montreal, H3N 1R4
Named for the great activists Madeleine Parent and Lea Roback, the Maison Parent-Roback brings together national and regional women's groups, a feminist publishing house and a resource center to improve the situation of women, eliminate violence and promote social justice.
We are very excited about this new chapter for Breast Cancer Action Quebec and look forward to tapping into this wide network as we continue with our strategic plan of becoming a more prominent actor in Quebec women's, environmental, health & safety and governmental milieus.
We will be organizing an Open House soon!
