The Community Planning & Allocations Department of Federation CJA is responsible for assessing and monitoring community services and programs. Working with a dedicated and experienced team of over 70 volunteers, the Department is also responsible for leading an annual allocation process (in accordance with Jewish principles) that ensures the accountability of Federation CJA and its constituent agencies to community donors regarding the use of these funds.
In carrying out its mission, the department strives to:
- Identify the immediate and long-term needs of the Montreal Jewish community in the areas of health, welfare, education, recreation, social services, culture and other related fields.
- Build bridges across the network of Jewish community organizations in Montreal to create a climate of mutual cooperation and strengthen the notion of “one community.”
- Play a leading role in the development of communal priorities
