Almage is the only resource available to the English senior residents of the eastern tip of the Island of Montreal. It is a population that has undergone some emotional, political, and economical changes in the past three decades.
A membership is always required to take part in Almage activities and / or programs. The membership is $25.00 annually.
Taking the history of the Quebec language issue into account, being an English-speaking person in the east end was not always easy. This situation is still a reality that the English-speaking population have to face every day.
The economic situation of the citizens of the east end is fragile, especially for the seniors. The majority of the east end seniors are low-income women who are having trouble making ends meet.
Since the early eighties, a new reality has emerged. The churches are now amalgamating with other English and French churches. English-speaking seniors are now feeling less support and are slowly losing something that is so precious to them: their sense of belonging. The support that members find at Almage is priceless.
A membership is always required to take part in Almage activities and / or programs. The membership for the year is $25.00, and if you would like to receive the newsletter at home, it is an additional $10.00 to cover the postage. Your membership is valid also at the other 2 satellite centres and the Home Support Program. A centre membership is valid from April 1st to March 31st of any given year. To become a member simply fill in the membership form below.
