COVID-19 emergency: Architecture Without Borders Québec to assist Montréal merchants

May 22, 2020

The Bureau du design is proud to have backed the application of Architecture Without Borders Québec (Architecture sans frontières Quebec—ASFQ) to the selection committee overseeing the call for proposals from NPOs by Montréal’s department of economic development, aimed at providing various types of technical support to Montréal businesses.

With a contribution of $150,000, the organization will be able to assist over one hundred merchants in need of help adapting their establishments to comply with social distancing and health measures issued by public health authorities. The ASFQ will also produce a freely accessible commercial adaptation guide, slated for release in June.

Until October, a team of professionals will lend a hand by carrying out health audits and adaptations for small independent businesses in order to reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19.
