From top to bottom, you have:

Р an LGBT youth group and a nonprofit that tries to take the mystery out of sexual diversity

– a mosque

– a centre (Parents-Espoir, link in French) for people who are dealing with mental health problems while raising kids

– a language school which is almost certainly a front for a fringe African Christian group

– the multiethnic centre

– the Centre for Rights and Freedoms (equivalent of the ACLU).

…and they all seem to get along, at least well enough to share a building. Welcome to modern urban living!
