Initiatives and collaborations



Project Be, an initiative of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) Youth Council, allows public servants to donate directly to organizations that support three specific pillars:

Youth and Mental Health

Supporting Indigenous Causes

Addressing Homelessness

In the region, these donations have been redistributed by Centraide Outaouais to local organizations whose programs target these three objectives. Youth mental health is supported by programs run by youth centres. As these centres already play a vital role in the lives of the young people who attend them, the funds help to set up and ensure support for the development of strong mental health. Funds have also been invested in programs benefiting the region’s Indigenous communities, whether through interventions or culturally adapted collective kitchens. The Gîte Ami, a temporary shelter, received funding under the homelessness pillar.


Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation

The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation has been recognized for its involvement in numerous social initiatives for many years. Its mission is to counter poverty by promoting conditions favourable to the fulfillment of the potential of all young people living in Quebec. With this in mind, funds from the Fonds Soutien Jeunesse were donated to Centraide Outaouais to pursue the following objectives:

Maintaining motivation and academic perseverance

Building the self-esteem of young people experiencing difficulties

Since 2022, the following community organizations have benefited from this fund, which enables them to carry out programs that invest in the future of youth:

  • Prévention César
  • Le Jardin éducatif du Pontiac
  • Jeunesse Sans Frontières Vallée-de-la-Gatineau
  • Maison de jeunes Le Mashado
  • Les Maisons des jeunes du Pontiac
  • SAGA Jeunesse
  • Service animation jeunesse de l’Outaouais
  • Les Enfants de l’Espoir
  • Dimension Sportive et Culturelle

Their various services, ranging from street work to activities set up by and for young people, uniquely promote academic perseverance and self-esteem.
