This hotel shows a social involvement
The Hotel Y Montreal adheres to the values and principles of the social economy. It financially supports the efforts of the YWCA Montreal and contributes to its mission of building a better future for women and girls.
Throughout 2015 and 2016, over 94 000 individuals, both men and women, stayed in one of the 62 rooms at the Hotel Y Montreal and Auberge YWCA. They contribute to net earnings of over $ 307 000 – essential income to support the mission of the YWCA Montreal to collectively build a better future for women and girls.
Your stay has a significant impact on the Great Montreal Women and girls’ life.
All profits generated by the hotel are directly reinvested in this mission and in the organization’s programs. Iolanda-Cristina’s testimony below shows an example of the concrete impacts the Hotel Y Montreal financial support has on the community organization.
” I called the legal clinic a few times in the winter of 2016 concerning a custody issue. I had two hearings where I had to represent myself alone, and because the time limits were really short I met with a number of lawyers from the clinic. They gave me very good advice that was really helpful and got me through a very hard time, and it isn’t over yet. I believe that the clinic and the services it provides are really fantastic. Congratulations! You have all my admiration.” – Iolanda-Cristina, a client of the legal information clinic at YWCA Montreal
