L’Autre Montréal is a group of people who through training and research in areas such as history, architecture, urban planning and sociology, and through their involvement in grass-roots organizations in Montreal’s low-income neighbourhoods, have acquired extensive first-hand knowledge of Montreal realities.
Urban discovery tours are L’Autre Montréal’s chief activity. Through its guided tours, the group shares its love for Montreal’s unique heritage and common culture, encourages citizens to participate in decisions affecting the city today, and provides visitors from Quebec and elsewhere with an introduction to Montreal’s intense community and cultural life.
Members of community organisations and unions, employees of the health and social services system, college and university students and foreign visitors have acquired a deeper knowledge of the city through L’Autre Montréal tours.
The indigenous and the city
At the time of New France Europeans saw only the fur trade yet Montreal was and is one of the great crossroads of Onowaragen (Turtle Island) the North American continent's great river systems. Today, indigenous and non -Aboriginal coexist in the city, without necessarily understanding indigenous realities. From Kahnawake (Sault St. Louis) to the Native Friendship Centre , the circuit refers to the modern and historical presence and perspectives of urban Aboriginals , from the 16th - 21th century.
