Mr. Speaker, Espace Famille Villeray is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services and activities for parents-to-be and families with children between the ages of zero and five.
Established in 1988 as La Jouthèque de Villeray, it is part of the community fabric of Papineau, which I am proud to represent.
I am pleased to draw attention to the fact that it is celebrating its 25th anniversary. I have been working closely with this organization for a few years, and I can attest to all the support it provides to families in our community.
All too often, our community organizations rely on funding. They need our help to develop new programs, move into new spaces and get the word out about their services to the parents and families that need them.
I would like to congratulate the members of the organizing committee and the volunteers who make Espace Famille Villeray another success story in Papineau.
