Community Service Workers


Our communities are facing a crisis

We have more people living on our streets, crowded into our jails, fighting with their addictions, and fending for themselves with mental illness or disabilities. We have more people and more families struggling to get by.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Community Service Workers support us. All we have to do is support them, too.

NUPGE supports temporary court order exempting people experiencing homelessness from Quebec curfew

“There was never a logical reason to include people experiencing homelessness in the curfew. People experiencing homelessness have no permanent shelter to stay in during the curfew, nor do they have the resources to pay the fines for breaking curfew. Had people experiencing homelessness been exempt from the curfew from the start, Raphaël André would still be with us today.” ― Larry Brown, NUPGE President
