  • Latest update – May 10:
    Introduced the new formats of the four tables and forms below.
    They are not yet embedded within the other pages of this site, and need to be populated with all the listings we have (and ones we don’t have – especially from Gatineau, and outside of the two municipalities).
    After doing so, the next main aims are to work on language issues (bilingualism), and to create a printable sheet with a list of support phone numbers for use as handout.

Use the forms below to add listings or provide feedback you may have for this site.

Add listings to the directories on this site

The idea for this site, is that crowd-sourcing can help maintain comprehensive listings, so that people can access the full variety of initiatives available in one spot.

There are 4 separate tables of listings maintained for this site and one feedback form.

We need your help – Please add any entries you know of that aren’t already included.
Note there are many entries on this site’s other pages, that are not yet in the tables.

  • Add listings via the following forms (and see each table embedded below):
