About Federation CJA:

Founded in 1917, Federation CJA (FCJA) leads in promoting a vibrant and caring Montreal Jewish community that welcomes diversity, and strengthens Jewish life, education and values.

There are 18,535 Jewish seniors living in Montreal; 3,165 of them live in poverty. Statistics show that this isa higher level of poverty than found in Jewish communities in other Canadian cities. To help these people, FCJA funds charities that feed the poor, help seniors and organize community events.

It gave $2.5m to Agence Ometz, $2m to Community Poverty Relief Fund, $1.6m to Cummins Centre and $1.4m to Bronfman Jewish Education Centre. FCJA also distributed $3m to support college students through its Tuition Assistance Allocation program. FCJA provided 5,184 lunches to children and crisis intervention to 2,149 seniors in F2015.
