Annual contribution to Centraide: A solidarity commitment

Since 2012, Groupe CIS has been proud of its commitment with conviction to the Centraide organization, reflecting the desire to fight against poverty and social exclusion. Each year, we contribute generously, with donations amounting to a few thousand dollars. This amount is the result of the generosity of our employees, demonstrating their solidarity with those most in need and contributing to the local community.

Centraide, with its crucial mission to combat poverty and social exclusion, is a pillar in the Greater Montreal region, where 60% of Quebecers living in poverty reside. Poverty affects various segments of the population, including single-parent families, single people, those with disabilities, recent immigrants or those in precarious situations, and members of visible minorities.

The consequences of poverty are multiple and affect access to education, quality of housing, food security, physical and mental health, and even life expectancy. Poverty is not only an individual issue, it has a cost for society, depriving Quebec of its full potential of talents and resources, estimated between 15.7 and 17 billion dollars per year.

As a company, we are proud of our commitment to United Way and we are aware of the positive impact our support brings. We firmly believe that it is by working together that we can break the vicious cycle of poverty and social exclusion, and build a stronger and more inclusive community for all.
