The impact of your gift

Marie, a person helped by the ACEF de la Rive-Sud. Marie would like to be able to go to the movies and buy presents for her beloved grandchildren, but for now, her hope is to find affordable housing, such as a co-op or social housing, just so she can “live”, quite simply. Watch video of Marie's story (YouTube).


Centraide's mission is to fight poverty and social exclusion by acting on the issues that are most likely to bring about lasting and significant change in people’s lives.

To ensure your donations change lives for life, Centraide supports a vast network of agencies that work in four areas of action:

  1. Support Youth Success: Get young people on the road to success to break the cycle of poverty and social exclusion. Learn more
  2. Take Care of the Essentials: Help young and old access adequate food and housing. Learn more.
  3. Break Social Isolation: Make sure that everyone can fully participate and contribute in society, no matter what their age, sex, origin or abilities. Learn more.
  4. Build Caring Communities: Unite the strengths of residents and agencies so that together they can improve the living conditions in their neighbourhoods. Learn more
