Information Meeting on the McGill Mega-Hospital (MUHC): Thursday January 29th at 7pm.
As you probably know, the MUHC signed a partnership agreement with the Interneighbourhood Coalition (CIQ) in 2004. The CIQ includes groups from Westmount, NDG and St Henri. In that agreement, the MUHC agreed to work with neighbourhood groups to maximize the positive effects of the arrival of the hospital in the surrounding neighbourhoods. The Interneighbourhood Coalition is presenting their work over the past few years at this information session, with an important recent update.
