The SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation supports existing and emerging social transformation initiatives that unite the efforts of Concordians and their partners with the goal of creating a more just, inclusive, and broadly prosperous Montreal.
Introducing our funded projects
SHIFT is proud to support 15 socially transformative projects that were selected through our Funding and Support Program, as well as 15 additional projects that were funded through our Transformative Responses to COVID-19 program. Read more about these transformative efforts and find out how their work is contributing to systemic change on campus and across the city.
Recognizing the inherent complexity of working across differences in power and practices to tackle major societal challenges, we strive to create the conditions for success by:
Facilitating connections between Concordians and external stakeholders;
Funding and accompanying multi-stakeholder collaborations; and
Creating opportunities for deep knowledge sharing
