Do you operate a non-profit organization in the field of social development or intercultural relations? The city invites residents to submit a project that promotes ethnocultural diversity and opportunities for dialogue aimed at fighting discrimination and racism.


The call for projects under Montréal’s 2023 intercultural program is made possible thanks to joint financing from the city and the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration.
