Rallying together in Estrie

ConcertAction Femmes Estrie supports and is involved in Estrie’s autonomous community action network (ACA)!
The network’s mission is to improve the living conditions of the population, to uphold rights, and to ensure that the government adequately supports independent community action by increasing related funding and respecting the autonomy of this sector, while reinvesting in public services and social programs.




Faults :
– Broken funding promises
– Obstruction of working conditions
– Breakdown in services and the mission of social transformation
– Rudeness to marginalized people  
Despite the ACA’s critical contribution during the pandemic, the alarming burnout of workers and the skyrocketing needs of the population, the government continues to take us for granted.

From October 18-24, the Semaine nationale de l’action communautaire autonome [national week for independent community action] (#SNACA) will be highlighting the beauty and incredible strength of the independent community action movement, which continues to be as vibrant as ever! Even as they continue to be caught in the whirlwind of an unprecedented crisis, community organizations continue to burst with creativity and evolve and transform to create a more just, green and inclusive society.


Twenty years after the adoption of the Government Policy on Community Action and as the Réseau québécois de l’action communautaire autonome (RQ-ACA) marks its 25th anniversary, we honour the long history of dedication and social struggles that have forged our network. As we remember our collective journey and look to the future, we celebrate independent community action—the only movement of its kind in the world!


With this visual, created by the talented Emilie Tremblay, we encourage you to celebrate, to make some noise, and to highlight the lively and very colourful world of this vibrant movement!


The Semaine nationale de l’action communautaire autonome (national week for independent community action) seeks to highlight the work of the 4,000 ACA organizations across Quebec and to pay tribute to the 60,000 workers and 425,000 activists and volunteers who work to advance their causes every day.

ConcertAction Femmes Estrie rallies member groups together for “La planète s’invite au communautaire” (the planet invites itself into community life) initiatives.

In response to the climate emergency, a global movement is coalescing to demand concrete action plans from governments. CAFE and the ACA network in Estrie are joining forces to inform and galvanize the people of Estrie.

For more information on the campaign, check out the special environmental-issue newsletter of the Table ronde des organismes à vocation d’éducation populaire de l’Estrie (TROVEPE): Click here.
