During the public council meeting on February 1st, the City of Sainte-Thérèse adopted a resolution to award $ 23,425 in grants to 17 non-profit organizations working in the territory. These amounts were determined according to the principles of the Support Policy for Organizations.
The Teresian population is privileged to be able to count on so many cultural, sporting and community organizations involved in the community. With the exceptional situation we are experiencing, it is impossible to ignore the involvement of volunteers within them.
“More than ever, the many generous and supportive volunteers play a leading role in our community. This is an opportunity to recognize and thank these kind-hearted men and women who get involved without counting the hours,” said the mayoress of Sainte-Thérèse, Sylvie Surprenant.
In July 2020, in order to improve the quality of services offered to community organizations, the City of Sainte-Thérèse adopted a new Support Policy for Organizations. This aims to recognize and support, in a privileged way, the organizations that work with the Teresians. It offers an up-to-date frame of reference whose clear and fair criteria allow them to take advantage of the various services offered by the City.
Each year, organizations must submit their application before June 30 to be eligible for grants awarded the following year. The Support for Organizations Policy is available at www.sainte‑therese.ca> City> Municipal administration> Policies and action plans.
