COVID-19: the community demands emergency funds

Deploring the bureaucratic zeal, community organizations launched a cry of heart on Friday for the creation by the government of emergency funds to deal with the second wave of COVID-19.

The Quebec Network for Autonomous Community Action (RQ-ACA) cannot be explained that several organizations have not received any additional support, in education for example.

He explains, among other things, that groups have had to give up badly needed financial assistance because they were unable to comply with the bureaucratic demands of the government.

It is with this in mind that the Network implores the government to put an end to bureaucratic zeal. “The government always requires more paperwork, performance and statistical reports while we keep the social net at arm’s length,” said Hugo Valiquette, spokesperson for the RQ-ACA.

He argued that more and more people are losing their jobs, finding themselves in precarious situations and knocking harder and harder on the doors of community organizations.
