The Council for Black Aging Community of Montreal

elder, black community

Consideration of the historical realities which frame present-day behavioural patterns of black seniors in Montreal weakens the claim that all Black elders can be adequately cared for by mainstream institutions. Historical experiences such as slavery, underemployment, racial discrimination, sentiments of second class citizenship etc., have resulted in many Black seniors failing to trust existing institutions.

The Council for Black Aging Community of Montreal currently offers the following services:

  • Home services;
  • Volunteering;
  • Support group;
  • Seniors' activity group;
  • A discovery program;
  • Annual conferences.
