Who are our partners?
The Centre International de l’Espoir (CIE) owes its successful achievements to its collaboration with two types of partners, namely work partners and financial partners. The common ground that brings the two categories of partners together around the Centre International de l’Espoir (CIE) is their support for social and community causes championed by our organization. Our interventions for pregnant women and young children are appreciated and strongly supported by both types of partners, as the significant positive impacts on the community are recognized by them.
Some have provided us with financial resources, while others continue to do so, to consistently replenish our “Baby and Child Bank” resource. This enables the Centre International de l’Espoir to provide significant support to pregnant women and young children on the Island of Montreal. Our work with pregnant women and young children has been appreciated and strongly supported by both types of partners, as they recognize the significant positive impact on the community.
- The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation
- The Federal Government/Canadian Red Cross
- The Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (CDN-NDG) Borough
Our financial partners, although they do not support us on a permanent basis, have provided us with grants to help us continue our mission of supporting pregnant women and young children aged 0-5.
These partners refer families in need to the Centre International de l’Espoir (CIE) on a daily basis:
- The Côte-des-Neiges Community Development Corporation
- Jeunesse au Soleil
- The Saint-Laurent Social Pediatrics Centre
- The Montreal Children’s Hospital
- Sainte-Justine Hospital
- The CLSCs
- The YMCAs
- The Blue Houses

Why Become a Partner?
Because the “Baby and Child Bank Program” has become an important resource for helping families and the community on the Island of Montreal. This resource enables expectant mothers and families to welcome their babies and give them the chance to be born and grow up with dignity. The needs are enormous, and your support will help us meet the demand that has been exacerbated by the Corona virus crisis. By becoming a financial partner, you contribute to the well-being of families and young children, promoting their psycho-somatic development from an early age, and providing them with the resources they need for their full development.
