Centraide's March of 1,000 Umbrellas 2013


Launch of Campaign 2013 and announcement of the financial goal

A sea of colourful umbrellas in movement.

Hurry up and mark Centraide’s famous March of 1,000 Umbrellas in your agenda. Pass the word along to your friends and co-workers, and plan to display the colours of your company, organization, union, community agency or neighbourhood.

Decorate your umbrellas in your image, with imagination and panache, and join the 20,000 marchers—people who help and people who benefit from the work of Centraide—for the greatest annual demonstration against poverty and exclusion in Greater Montreal.


The march takes place on October 1, 2013
