The Réseau de développement social de Brome-Missisquoi (RDSBM) is a governance structure that our community has set up to improve communications and the coordination of actions between the consultations in our territory. In addition, the RDSBM wants to unite the living forces of the territory around major priorities carried by the majority of actors.

The origin of the approach arises with the findings of work in silos and the need to improve communications and linkages of actions between consultations. In August 2018, the working committee began its process and is made up of 19 representatives from the community. 2 consultations meetings were held bringing together more than 70 organizations. On April 11, 2019, the assembly agrees to start experimenting with the proposed model. All of the players in our community are brought together in these two approaches.


The RDSBM is made up of several issue tables which are, as can be seen under the Issue tables tab, classified as follows:


- Community development tables;

- Issue table by population;

- Municipal sector committees;

- Thematic tables.
