MONTREAL — The City of Montreal says it will hold public consultations on how to better integrate homeless services with surrounding neighbourhoods.

The announcement comes as Montrealers who live near organizations that serve vulnerable people are raising alarms about visible drug use, homelessness and troubling behavior on their doorsteps.

Mayor Valérie Plante said in a statement that the city has heard the concerns of businesses, families and community members about the way these resources are managed.

She says the need for such services continues to grow and the city wants to involve citizens so that future projects are implemented “more harmoniously.”
