Focus Montreal introduces Montrealers to people who are shaping our community and bringing their stories into focus.

It airs on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 7:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and at midnight.

Take a look at who we’re meeting this week on Focus Montreal:

The Montreal Impact advance to the first leg of the Eastern Conference final 

For the first time in the history of the franchise, the Montreal Impact have advanced to the MLS Eastern Conference Championship.

The first leg of the Eastern Conference final will be held on Tuesday at Olympic Stadium.
Fans couldn’t wait to get their hands on tickets, which have nearly sold out.
Montreal will be facing off against Toronto FC, a duel that will surely ignite both fan bases.

The executive vice-president of the Montreal Impact, Richard Legendre, joins Jamie Orchard to share the excitement over the team’s achievement.

Runaway Prevention Month 

We’ve heard several stories in the media recently about runaways and the risks they face.

That’s why for the past five years, the Missing Children’s Network has named November “Runaway Prevention Month.”

The goal is to raise awareness about the plight of runaway youth in our province and what families and educators can do to recognize the signs and take action.

Jamie Orchard sits down with the head of the Missing Children’s Network, Pina Arcamone.

Great Montrealer: Franca Sparapani

Jamie Orchard introduces this week’s Great Montrealer, a woman who suffered a setback in the corporate world and moved on to enrich her community.

Franca Sparapani is the founder of the Adult Activity and Respite Centre in Greenfield Park.

She provides safety and comfort to some of the most vulnerable seniors in her community and she does it with pure joy.
