The Secrétariat à la région métropolitaine reports to the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation. It supports the territorial, economic, cultural and social growth of Montréal and the metropolitan region, in particular by supporting various initiatives that contribute to their development.
The mandate of the Réseau d’échange et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL) is to support the development and/or improvement of local initiatives in the areas of bullying prevention, sexual exploitation, gang membership and radicalization leading to violence.
More specifically, RÉSAL brings together different partners around a single network in order to provide responses that take into account the cross-cutting nature of violence issues. To do so, RÉSAL carries out its mission in three ways: (1) by raising awareness and sharing knowledge and promising practices aimed at preventing youth violence, (2) by building the capacities of local actors, and (3) by supporting communities in prioritizing their issues through problem-solving activities.
