The proposed conversion of the mother house of the Congrégation des Soeurs de Ste-Anne in Lachine into a subsidized-housing facility will be the object of public of hearings overseen by Montreal’s office of public consultations (OCPM).

The conversion will include construction of a new residence to accommodate the sisters, while the main building is slated to be eventually transformed into housing units. A wing will be added to the complex and all three wings will be used to accommodate seniors.

The consultation process will begin with an information session scheduled for 7 p.m. on May 29 at the Salle Marie-Anne Blondin of the mother house, at the corner of Provost and Esther-Blondin Sts. 

The second phase will take place at the same venue at 7 p.m. on June 20 and allow citizens express their opinions and make recommendations on the project. Those citizens who intend to participate in this session must inform the OCPM before June 14 by calling Gilles Vézina at 514-872-8510.

Information on the project is available at the OCPM’s offices at 1550 Metcalfe St., suite 1414, as well as at the Accès Montréal office in Lachine at 1800 Saint-Joseph Blvd. Documentation is also available online at ocpm.qc.ca/soeurssainteanne.
