Montreal Families

Neighbours’ Day promotes sense of community

On Saturday, June 10, Montrealers will participate in one of thousands of Neighbours’ Day events happening in communities throughout the province. These events are organized by individuals with the intention of becoming better acquainted with neighbours and fostering positive relationships.

Activities vary and include a simple BBQ, a 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. happy hour, closing the street off for a block party or organizing a picnic at the park.

Neighbours’ Day began in France in 1999, and is now celebrated by nearly 12 million Europeans in 44 countries. The Réseau québécois de Villes et Villages en santé brought the idea to Quebec, hosting the first Neighbours’ Day events in North America back in 2006. Beginning with just 250 celebrations in 26 municipalities, enthusiasm for the idea has grown each year. Today, there are thousands of Neighbours’ Day events in more than 300 municipalities.
