New York – July 6th, 2021  — OUTFRONT Media Inc. (NYSE: OUT)

OUTFRONT Media Inc. (NYSE: OUT) is proud to announce its partnership with Welcome Hall Mission to promote this charitable organization’s commitment to supporting Montrealers in need. With a campaign that started May 17, 2021, Montreal Helps Montreal utilized OUTFRONT’s network of static and digital boards as well as BIXI street level advertising to increase awareness and encourage donations in communities across Montreal.

Leveraging the success of the first phase of Montreal Helps Montreal in November 2020, Welcome Hall Mission was able to adapt and expand their services in order to reach more Montrealers struggling with homelessness, food insecurity, mental health challenges and poverty. Their programs and services are designed to help vulnerable, impoverished Montrealers acquire permanent housing, access to free meals and groceries and psychosocial support for youth and single mothers. Every week, Welcome Hall Mission provides close to 5,000 meals as well as groceries for over 3,000 Montrealers in need. They are considered Montreal’s largest doorway to help for Montrealers in need.

The Montreal Helps Montreal campaign was designed to use a combination of OUTFRONT assets to reach Montrealers as they commute on highways throughout the city and in their neighborhoods but also as they walk and bike in urban areas. BIXI is one of OUTFRONT’s newest media products and offers street level advertising in over 20 boroughs and the opportunity for seamless community integration and eye level messaging for Montreal Helps Montreal.

“Similarly to Welcome Hall Mission, OUTFRONT is a national organization with deep roots in the Montreal community for over a century. The goal of collaborating with Welcome Hall Mission was not only to get in front of Montrealers through our assets, but to connect with them through the Montreal Helps Montreal campaign.” said Michele Erskine, CEO OUTFRONT Canada. “It is a privilege to be a part of helping this organization uplift the community with the eventual goal of eliminating homelessness altogether.”

“Welcome Hall Mission is proud to have OUTFRONT on board as a partner for the Montreal Helps Montreal campaign. The partnership commitment of OUTFRONT has helped us to raise awareness by creating a strong call to action in the Greater Montreal Area.” said Sam Watts, CEO, Welcome Hall Mission “Superboards, billboards, digital boards and BIXI stations throughout the city have had a significant impact, making it possible to get our message out and expand our awareness and support throughout Montreal. OUTFRONT’s partnership has played an important part in supporting our organization, enabling us to serve even more people in need and bringing us closer to our ultimate goal of completely eradicating homelessness and poverty in Montreal.”
