The borough will be part of Route du lait, a network of breastfeeding-friendly businesses and establishments. In order to be a part of the network, the space must provide a place where mothers can breastfeed without having to purchase anything.
The borough has put together a list of municipal buildings that will now provide those spaces.
- Marcel-Giroux community centre,
- Elgar community centre,
- Verdun cultural centre,
- Outdoor pools,
- The borough hall office,
- The Verdun Auditorium,
- La Station community centre in Nuns’ Island,
- The chalets at Willibrord and Arthur-Therrien parks.
The network, which is an initiative of breastfeeding support group Nourri Source Montreal, already includes more than 200 establishments in Verdun, N.D.G., the Plateau Mont-Royal and the West Island.
