Montreal

With 250 year-old roots in the province, Quebec Jews form the oldest and second largest Jewish community in Canada. The overwhelming majority of the province’s 90,000 Jews live in the Greater Metropolitan Area of Montreal, though Quebec City is experiencing renewed, burgeoning Jewish life. As a historical community in Quebec, Jews have played a crucial role in the development of Quebec and its metropolis, Montreal. In Quebec, CIJA works in partnership with Federation CJA, the province’s central address for Jewish philanthropy and community services. CIJA engages in pro-Israel and Jewish advocacy, government and media relations, campus outreach, and public policy. CIJA receives guidance from the Local Partner Council, consisting of leading volunteers who serve as the advocacy steering committee for Quebec, based on CIJA’s strategic objectives.
