Over the past 24 years, Family Ties has become firmly rooted in the community it serves. People of all ages take part in the various programs, volunteer their time, make donations and, as members, take part in the democratic life of the organization.
The contributions made by our volunteers and members are especially valued and we are proud of their accomplishments, both individually and as a team.
The Council for Anglophone Magdalen Islanders (CAMI) is a regional association that has been assisting the English-speaking community of the Magdalen Islands for over 30 years.
CAMI’s programming is built on core funding through the Department of Canadian Heritage Official Language Minority Community program. The development and delivery of programs and services promote and facilitate the active participation and integration of English-speakers in the Islands and in Québec society as a whole. The core funding received from Canadian Heritage is the foundation of the organization, helping leverage the additional financial and in-kind support required to build sound infrastructure for an effective community development organization.
Inspirations is much more than a newspaper. It is a resource that informs and connects parents, caregivers, teachers, students and the public-at-large to the special needs community.
Our quarterly publications, our events, extensive community outreach, and our database of special needs resources are the staples which drive Inspirations.
A leader in Quebec, the Literacy Foundation (FPA) draws its expertise from an analysis of illiteracy issues and the solutions for eliminating illiteracy. To that end, the Foundation believes it is imperative to raise awareness of the importance of lifelong literacy and contribute to improving the quality of life of individuals who are illiterate or poor readers.
Since its inception in 1989, the Literacy Foundation has innovated by creating many projects that have made it known in Quebec, elsewhere in Canada, and on the international scene. From 1996 onward, it implemented sound strategic planning. The credibility of the social action proposed by the Foundation lies in the strength of its convictions and its profound belief in the need to generate change in society so as to enhance the quality of life of illiterate individuals, and thereby of the community at large.
Since 1966, the TA Institute helps learners of all ages who are living with a learning disability or difficulty, their loved ones and the stakeholders who revolve around them. The TA Institute is a charitable organization whose mission is to ensure equal opportunities for people living with a learning disability and to enable them to develop to their full potential in our society.
The work of the MCLD is only possible because of the selfless efforts of volunteers from the community of Montreal. While some are students in high school and university, bringing their enthusiasm and youthful energy to our programs, our volunteers come from all walks of life, donating their knowledge and time to a cause that has touched their hearts.
But regardless of their age or job, all of our volunteers are community leaders, spreading the MCLD’s message of greater support and education around learning disabilities within Montreal.
