Collective Community Services (Montreal)

Engaged in community service since 1932


CCS has served Montreal for over 87 years as a private-sector social agency. Originally incorporated in 1932 as Catholic Welfare Bureau Inc., CCS has adapted to better meet the needs of the diversified communities we serve. Our name changed many years ago to Collective Community Services, to better reflect the diversity of people we serve, regardless of origin, physical ability, education, ethnicity, language, gender orientation, race or religion. We use our base in Verdun as a springboard to serve multiple neighbourhoods across Greater Montreal.


CCS improves the quality of life of individuals by significantly reducing isolation and effectively supporting those living in poverty, primarily within the English speaking community of Greater Montreal.


The volunteers and staff of CCS endeavour daily to give individuals living in poverty or isolation within the English speaking community, a safe and caring place to turn to.
