Quebec City contractor ready to immediately house 200 migrants

Quebec City (Quebec) 16 September 2015 – A Quebec City contractor, Yves Doyon president of Norplex, a properties investment company, has taken the lead in offering to help house 200 Syrian refugees. He owns a vacant building in Charlesbourg which could quickly and easily be adapted to accommodate families at least on a temporary basis.

The building, an old convent from the sisters of Saint François d’Assise has plenty of rooms, bathrooms and a large kitchen all of which could be quickly up and running with the help of the city and any volunteers who wish to participate.

Mayor Labeaume has already set up a launch committee headed up by Chantal Gilbert to get things rolling and hopes that everything will be ready in about two weeks.

Whether or not the refugees arrive all at once or in smaller groups is up in the air but, whatever the case, the building will be cleaned and stocked with the necessary items to welcome the newcomers when they arrive.

M. Doyon is also reaching out to the local community to offer any help they can in the way of donations of food, clothes, medication, money or even helping out in the kitchen or in any way appropriate to make the transition go smoothly for the new families.
