Montreal opens temporary homeless shelters due to curfew

Montreal opens temporary homeless shelters

Temporary homeless shelters – After the Premier of Quebec said he is not lifting the curfew for the homeless in Montreal because he thinks anyone could pretend they are homeless and go out without the curfew affecting them. Montreal has converted an arena, skate park and soon to be park into a temporary homeless shelter and warming centre.

Pierre Charbonneau arena turned into temporary homeless shelters

The temporary homeless shelter is located near the Olympic Stadium at the Pierre Charbonneau arena. The shelter will remain open every night until at least March 31, 2021. At this point the shelter only houses 40 beds but will transform into 112 people, and 30 will be turned into a women section.

Also the TAZ indoor skate park has been turned into a shelter for people who have contracted the coronavirus and have no home. The TAZ indoor skate park is located at, 8931 Avenue Papineau, Montréal, QC H2M 0A5. This shelter is for people who do not need medical attention but do have COVID-19.

Cabot Square on Atwater and Ste-Catherine will also turn into a warming centre for homeless at some point this week.

Since the beginning of December over 192 homeless have contracted the coronavirus and 82 people form community groups who help and work with them.

Over 400 people who are homeless have been vaccinated for the coronavirus plus 200 health workers. The city of Montreal is optimistic and hope to have another 500 homeless vaccinated in the coming weeks.
