Created in 1981, la Table de concertation (Neighbourhood Round Table) Action-Gardien (la Corporation de développement de Pointe-Saint-Charles) takes its name from the English expression "Watch Dog Committee".
It is a tool that brings together neighbourhood's community organizations. Through cooperation, collective action and citizen mobilization, it aims to strengthen the population's ability to take charge of improving its living conditions. Citizens can collectively exercise power and action on issues that directly affect them: health, housing, income, education, urban planning, justice and advocacy, the environment, safety, historical heritage, culture, living conditions (youth, families, women, seniors, immigrants, etc.).
In 2004, Action-Gardien brought together 26 groups and two observer members, the Éco-quartier de Pointe-Saint-Charles and the Regroupement économique et social du Sud-Ouest (RÉSO) and it still continues to represent the will of citizens to take charge of the future of their neighbourhood.
