Funding database  

Since our founding in 1937, we have funded thousands of organizations working to create positive change across the country. Today, the majority of our funding goes towards organizations working in our focus areas of Communities, Reconciliation, and Climate. Our Capacity Strengthening stream also provides support to partners so they may bolster organizational capacity and leadership. Finally, we also devote a small portion of our funding to organizations working in our home city of Montreal. Explore our funding database to see our current and past funding partnerships from the early 2000s to the present.
