Our social commitment

A major endeavour, propelled by hope

Financial support to four non-profit organisations

In all workplaces and among retirees, an annual collection takes place for the benefit of organisations sponsored by the STM. Everyone is asked, via a major generosity campaign, to donate the amount of their choice to these organisations.

The four are: 

CentraideHealthPartners-Québec, Red Cross, Réchaud-Bus.

In 2023, the employees’ generosity campaign made it possible to donate $ 665 250 to these four organisations.

As a public organisation, the STM does not make any donations, whether in money or transportation tickets, and does not participate in any fundraising activities.
