Community

We have been a vital part of Montréal-Est for 90 years, so we know how much of a difference we can make. Every year, we earmark nearly $200,000 to support causes and projects that show true promise and deliver tangible results for Montréal-Est, Pointe-aux-Trembles, and Mercier-Est. We also encourage our employees to volunteer time to good causes that make our communities better places to live.

Community engagement

Giving back is everyone’s responsibility. That is why we encourage employees to get involved in organizations that enhance the life of local communities.

Since 2008 we have formalized our support through our Community Partnership Program, which provides financial aid to charitable organizations where employees volunteer their time.

This program is another illustration of our desire to increase our presence in the community and help employees share their commitment with coworkers and spur others to action.
