QUEBEC, Feb. 2021 / CNW Telbec / – The Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Mr.me Andrée Laforest, announces the initiation of the process leading to the placing under supervision of the Municipal Housing Office of Longueuil (OMHL).
An analysis of the situation carried out by an external firm on the serious problems that appeared within the organization over the past year led to the filing of an organizational diagnostic report on January 20. This report describes a negative working climate present at all levels of the organization and which has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the organization.
In addition, it is evident from this report that the implementation of measures is necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the office and to preserve the quality of services to tenants.
“I have read the report and the facts in it are very disturbing. As Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, I cannot tolerate such a situation, which jeopardizes the well-being of tenants and employees. By virtue of the powers associated with my office, I am therefore launching today the process leading to the placing under supervision of the Municipal Housing Office of Longueuil. I also informed the mayoress of this intention. “
Andrée Laforest, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
“I thank Minister Laforest for the frank and honest conversation we had. I come to the same conclusion, namely that the process of placing in guardianship must be initiated for the good of the employees and the tenants. Moreover, this is a position shared by the five elected officials appointed by the Agglomeration of Longueuil and who sit on the OMHL board of directors. “
