New call for proposals

February 7, 2023

Help in Montreal and elsewhere in Quebec

Transitioning to adulthood is a critical point in the lives of youths in care. It is a challenging time where youths in care often lack proper family support or a social safety net to help them navigate their new situation. We are committed to meeting the most pressing needs of youths in care in Montreal and other regions of Quebec.

If you are an organization or a foundation that supports youths who are or have been subject to the Youth Protection Act, including children in the care of the DYP or subject to the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and you would like to receive funding, please send us your proposal.

The funds provided under this program are intended for youths aged 16 to 25 who are or were in youth protection and have received support in becoming independent and transitioning to adulthood. By funding various initiatives, we are giving youths the opportunity to access additional support while enhancing the services available in their regions based on their specific needs.

We have $300,000 available in funding, making it possible to support 6 to 12 proposals. Projects will be selected based on merit and focus areas.
