Unitas' mission is to ensure a healthy collaboration between the leading community organizations in order to create what we refer to as a “United” or “Unified” Community. Not only is the United Community symbolic, it will allow a more efficient use of resources, optimized services and more extensive support of community needs in order to achieve what we consider is vital: the maintenance of Italian language, heritage and culture. 

United we stand… 10 things you need to know about the Unitas Project

The phrase “United we stand, divided we fall” has been attributed to the ancient Greek storyteller Aesop.

1-Only a United Community can help salvage and strengthen the Italian language, culture and heritage

2-The time has come for the FCCI to join forces with the other major community organizations and act as the fundraising arm of Montreal’s Italian community, one of the largest in Canada.

3-The philosophy behind Unitas is to work together in order to increase the value and role of each Italian community group via a collaborative effort, so that the true value of the Italian community and its contributions to Quebec society will be fully recognized.

4-Unitas will ensure that we are better prepared to face socio-economic challenges effectively and efficiently and to mobilize the Italian community.

5-Through the Unitas project, the FCCI will focus on its original mission: to raise and distribute funds to organizations endeavouring to promote health, education, Italian language and culture, and social causes, with priority given to organizations within the Italian community.

6-By implementing the Unitas project, we expect a reduction in redundant fundraising solicitations, a more efficient use of resources and optimized services and support of community needs.

7-The amendments, approved unanimously during the special assembly held on May 6, 2014, allow representation of 4 major community organizations on the Foundation’s Board of Fiduciaries.

8-Unitas brings together the following Italian community organizations:
Canadian - Italian Business and Professional Association (CIBPA)
National Congress of Italian-Canadians (NCIC)
Centre Leonardo da Vinci (CLDV)
Centre culturel de la Petite Italie-Casa d'Italia (CCPI-Casa d’Italia)

9-With Unitas, we hope that the culture of the Italian community will become more philanthropy-centric.

10-Society is evolving and the Italian community must evolve with it. United we stand!
