Administrative history

The Greater Montreal Anti-Poverty Coordinating Committee (GMAPCC) was founded in the spring of 1970 as a coalition of local English-speaking citizen’s groups composed of the city’s poor, mainly welfare recipients. By 1972, GMAPCC had adopted a statement of principles that covered a broad range of topics: jobs and income, housing and urban renewal, education, justice, consumer protection, mass media, democracy, women, racism, the elderly, workers and unions, language and nationalism, and big business.

Some conflicts among the member groups and the organizers led to the death of GMAPCC in 1975 and its rebirth with a new name "Neighbourhood Action Committee".
