Welcome to nursing mothers!
It's important to remember that under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms of Quebec, the right of women to breastfeed in public is protected. However, there are some initiatives across the province that enable businesses, public places and restaurants to proudly display a sign that welcomes breastfeeding moms where you can see the international breastfeeding logo. Among these, you can find the popular chain of St-Hubert restaurants, Premiere Moisson boutiques and several independent cafes and restaurants in the Montreal region.
In addition, the non-profit organization Nourri-Source has recently launched a new Route du Lait, an initiative involving businesses that agree to display a small blue sticker showing a happy family with a nursing mother. For now, the project is only located within the city of Montreal, with 17 businesses having already joined like restaurants, cafes, bookstores, boutiques and even an SAQ. Find the complete list (which continues to be updated regularly) on the Nourri-Source Facebook page.
