Since 1961

Since 1961, CIBPA Foundation has been committed to making a difference in the lives of Italian-Canadian students from the Italian Montreal community. As the leading Private Scholarship Fund in Canada, we invest in students from the Italian- Canadian community in Montreal — giving them an opportunity to reach their fullest potential through monetary assistance.

about us

Since its conception in 1961, the CIBPA Foundation has distributed over 3.5 million dollars for the purpose of supporting the education of young students of Italian origin in Quebec. Within the community, CIBPA’s bursary program is often touted as the true gem of the Italian-Canadian community in Montreal.


CIBPA Foundation supports creative thinkers who want to create a lasting change by addressing the causes of our greatest challenges. Your generous contribution can help to foster the lives of these individuals — and assist them in reaching their fullest potential.

our mission

Italian-Canadian’s have been an integral part of our country's growth and prosperity. Our traditional values, such as hard work, perseverance, dedication to preserving our cultural roots, giving back to the community and family, have kept our heritage strong throughout the generations. CIBPA Foundation’s student bursary program symbolizes our community’s dedication and investment in the future. The CIBPA Foundation offers post-secondary students from the Canadian-Italian community financial support to help them reach their professional dreams. By supporting these students’ success, they in turn, will support the future generations of the community.
