Our street workers travel all over Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in order to meet people in their own environment. Our street work takes places in several public as well as private Hochelaga-Maisonneuve locations, such as parks, private homes, businesses and community organizations. Our street workers establish relationships on a voluntary basis.

Trust, confidentiality, respect for peoples individual pace and an egalitarian relationship are the cornerstones of the relationship between street workers and individuals. On top of providing information and guidance, they also offer accompaniment services to direct individuals towards appropriate resources and provide a follow-up outside of the formal framework.

Dopamine allows me to meet people and break my isolation.

I feel useful in my neighbourhood and Sainte-Catherine Street keeps looking prettier and prettier thanks to us.

Thank you for allowing us to do the Green Squad for many more years – we really care about it.

A source of information that is sometimes very useful in my daily life, an occasion to foster links with certain people, sharing without being judged… and I find it very informative.

It is a meeting point and exchange point that breaks my isolation. It’s warm, welcoming, helpful, and supporting me in my efforts. A privileged moment that I appreciate due to its discretion and effectiveness.

I take part in Dopallies because it is a useful service for learning that has helped me to successfully change my behaviours. My way of talking with peers helps me stay focused on how to act safely. Prevention is important to me. Thank you.


It allows me to resocialize and decompress as I have a tendency to isolate myself.


I like walking down Sainte-Catherine Street and seeing the completed tree squares. I’m so proud!

I like when people from the neighbourhood come to us to talk to us, it shatters taboos and people do not judge us.

For me, Dopallies is a collection of relevant topics that help people on the street or drug users to deal with various issues that affect them.


The Green Squad helps me keep my mind off using.

For me, these are workshops on topics that concern us and directly affect us, as well as individual experiences that enrich us.


It was my first time volunteering with the Green Squad Green Brigade – I liked it so much that I want to do it again and again.
