Community Engagement Day cropped

SEDE (Social Equity and Diversity Education Office) is hosting its second annual Community Engagement Day, Friday, October 4th. CED connects students, staff and faculty volunteers with community organizations in Montreal such as the Native Women’s Shelter, Yellow Door, Santropol Roulant, and 40+ other social advocacy organizations. Activities include public discussions, sitting volleyball, filming a sign language music video, community walking tours, urban gardening, mural painting, youth mentorship, and more! Each activity is followed by a reflection discussion in order to foster deeper engagement and learning about societal issues that make these organizations necessary. CED is a great way to leave the McGill bubble and learn from the many diverse communities in Montreal. 

We have 43 activities across the city that focus on issues from food security to indigenous feminism. These activities are scheduled throughout the day, all around Montreal and can last from 2-4 hours. For a complete list of activities you can go to
