Centraide is reviewing its
investment strategy

Before determining which agencies and collective actions to support, Centraide establishes an investment strategy with broad guidelines on the use of the donations it receives, i.e. funding level and duration, distribution throughout the territory and among different needs (food security, mental health, seniors, youth). 

We began reviewing our investment strategy in fall 2019. Although the pandemic interrupted this work, the major and lasting social and financial effects of the health crisis impelled us to continue the process at the end of summer 2020. Centraide wants to ensure it remains as relevant as possible to counter the lasting impacts of the pandemic and help strengthen Greater Montreal’s communities.

Keep up with our progress leading up to the deployment of our new investment strategy on April 1, 2022 and don’t hesitate to send us your comments: allocati[email protected]
