Community Grants

Community Grants Program

In partnership with WINNERS, HomeSense and Marshalls

The winners announced!

Fierté Montréal recognizes the invaluable contribution of 2SLGBTQIA+ community-based organizations that, all around the province of Québec, work relentlessly to support members of our communities, fight against the discrimination we face, and advance our rights. Fierté Montréal also recognizes that a majority of 2SLGBTQIA+ community-based organizations remain underfunded and are available to work thanks to the involvement of dynamic and passionate teams of volunteers.

Thus, in collaboration with  WINNERS, HomeSense and Marshalls,, Fierté Montréal launched its Community Grants Program to support small community-based organizations in their mission and regular operations. From a total of 48 applications, ten 2SLGBTQIA+ community organizations representing the plurality and diversity of our communities will be awarded $2,500.

1. Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Mutual Aid: Peer support organization run by and for trans and non-binary folks in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean.
2. Trans Outaouais: Peer support organization run by and for members of the gender-diverse community in the Outaouais region.
3. Fierté Sherbrooke Pride: Festival aiming to represent and promote the empowerment of the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities in the Eastern Townships.
4. Two-Spirit Québec: Organization aiming to encourage the coming-in of LGBTQ+, Two-Spirit, and Indigiqueer people from various Indigenous nations of Quebec.
5. Mubaadarat: Peer support organization run by and for Arabic-speaking 2SLGBTQIA+ folks in Montreal.
6. Rainbow Noodles: Peer support organization run by and for Asian 2SLGBTQIA+ folks in Montreal.
7. Rock Camp Montreal: Summer music camp for trans, non-binary and gender-creative youth in Montreal.
