Respect for the Environment
The values that inspire all YWCA Montreal activities are equally evident in its relationship with the environment that surrounds it. That is why in 2009, the YWCA established a charter of eco-responsibility which all employees respect in the course of their work.
Similarly, in 2010, the YWCA Montreal acquired the funding needed to install a green roof on its main premises, which contributes to reduce the effects of urban heat islands. Installed in 2012, the YWCA’s green roof is one of the very few in downtown Montreal.
