The Montreal Community Cares Awards promotes community engagement, a key driver of strong cities, by recognizing community champions actively involved in making Montreal a better place to live and work. By partnering with the Montreal Community Cares Awards, businesses and foundations help build community engagement and positive civic values. They also support the Montreal Community Cares Foundation’s work with youth. This year, the funds raised through the gala will enable the Foundation to continue its student scholarship program, expand its summer youth leadership program and the EmpowerUs! program for teenage girls.
