The Foundation of Greater Montréal is proud to take part in the implementation of the Community Services Recovery Fund in the Greater Montreal region.

What is the Community Services Recovery Fund (CSRF)

The CSRF is a $400 million investment from the Government of Canada. It supports charities and non-profits, as they focus on how to adapt their organizations for pandemic recovery. It will provide funding to these community organizations, including Indigenous Governing Bodies, that provide services to communities across Canada.

The Government of Canada recognizes that this recovery will require a more inclusive model of economic growth. We need to create better opportunities for all Canadians. And now more than ever, community organizations are playing a key role in creating solutions to the many issues faced by Canadians.

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, community organizations across Canada have shown impressive stamina and creativity. They worked tirelessly to respond to the needs of their communities. The CSRF now responds to what they need, and will support organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic and acquire the tools they need to modernize.

Submit your application starting January 6, 2023

Eligible organizations will have the opportunity to submit a granting application to the CSRF between January 6 and February 21, 2023. Check out the Community Services Recovery Fund website to learn more about the eligibility requirements and how the application process works.
