Members of the OMHM Board of Directors

The OMHM's Board of Directors (CA) exercises the powers conferred on it by the Act and its letters patent. The Board adopts bylaws and policies and deals with current business by resolution. Nine members sit on the board. Five are appointed by the Montreal urban agglomeration council, two by the Québec government and two are elected by tenants.

The board is assisted by several committees

The Executive Committee

To facilitate the day-to-day management of the OMHM's activities, the Board of Directors delegates certain powers to the Executive Director. The latter relies on the advice and support of its management team in managing operations and overseeing the organization's major challenges.

Advisory committees of tenants in low-rent housing and ENHARMONIE (CCR)

  • three sectoral committees (which discuss the various challenges in different geographical sectors);
  • the maintenance and janitorial services auditing committee;
  • the committee on change of housing for bio-psycho-social reasons;
  • the MOUV (for young people aged between 12 and 25).
