Mission and Vision


To maximize financial and volunteer resources, so that Centraide, particularly by funding community agencies and working in partnership with them, can promote caring and social involvement in order to improve the quality of life in our community and empower its most vulnerable members to take charge of their lives.


To build caring communities throughout Greater Montreal. Centraide wants to make Greater Montreal into a place where the less fortunate have the means to live in dignity. To achieve this aim, it relies on citizens’ capacity for self-reliance and solidarity.
