About the project

As a result of concerns expressed by member groups and the need to take a stand on specific policy issues, the Table has proceeded to develop a new project, currently called Feminist Perspectives on Profiling. This project seeks to understand the experiences and discrimination experienced by Montreal women in relation to police and private security forces.

The Table convened its members and allied groups interested in the issue to form an advisory committee for the project's first year. The committee is composed of :


Steps of the project 

  1. Develop a portrait of experiences of discrimination following consultations with our members and their users.
  2. Disseminate the portrait to our members, partners, organizations and institutions, elected officials and the general public.
  3. Form a working group that will identify recommendations following the portrait and plan concrete actions.
