The foundation of the housing NPO L’ENTRÉE

L’ENTRÉE, the new organization that will be acting as a property owner to offer affordable housing in the Coaticook region, has appointed its very first Board of Directors.

This took place at the group’s founding general meeting, held on Tuesday evening, January 30, and attended by almost forty people.

At this meeting, the project partners—the MRC de Coaticook, the Corporation de développement communautaire (CDC) de la MRC de Coaticook and the Société d’aide au développement de la collectivité (SADC) de la région de Coaticook—were presented, and the by-laws approved.

Three positions on the Board of Directors were filled, by Michel-Henri Goyette (MRC), Émilie Drouin (CDC) and Joanne Beaudin (SADC), all founding members of L’ENTRÉE. Raynald Drolet, Luce Paradis, Martine Lebel and Maude Sirois also took up their seats.

The group will be supported by the Fédération régionale des OBSL en habitation de la Montérégie et de l’Estrie. This organization, which boasts extensive experience in the sector, will be supporting the team in launching the project and managing future properties. FROHME’s Director of Special Projects was on hand to preside over L’ENTRÉE’s first general meeting. François Giguère, General Manager of SOLIDES in Châteauguay, was also in attendance.
This organization inspired the Coaticook committee to establish the local group.
