Suzelle Parcelle is a resident of the Îlot de solidarité.

Here, it's very pleasant, especially in summer, she adds.

We are really in the notion of permanent housing. The people are aging people and are people who will be able to keep their housing until the end of their days if they have the appropriate services. This is why we are focusing on solidarity, not just on the intervention of our teams, adds Jacinthe Dorr, the deputy general director of the Ensoleilvent organization.

With 14 units, the Appartenance Drummond complex should be completed in the coming months.
