What We Do

Dress for Success Montreal’s objective is to create systemic change by equipping thousands of Montreal-area women with professional attire and technical skills. Each year, we provide women with the resources and support network needed to attain long-term employment and success – ultimately building skilled women leaders in our community.

Our organization provides professional attire and interview preparation to women ready to enter the workforce. Our clients are referred by more than 40 partner organizations throughout Montreal and Quebec. Our programs offer women an opportunity to participate in workshops based on their individual needs including job search skills, career education and job retention.

How we Support Women in Montreal

The Suiting Program

The Suiting Program is about more than just finding work clothes. It’s a transformational experience that builds confidence and self-esteem, enabling a woman to secure meaningful employment, career success and financial independence. We serve women by referral only through a wide range of agency partners across the city. Each client is paired one-on-one with a volunteer clothing stylist who provides advice, guidance, and recommendations during a personal 90-minute appointment at our Boutique. She is provided with two professional outfits for when she has a job interview. When she successfully lands the job, she can return for a second appointment to receive three additional work outfits to help her build a professional wardrobe. Click here to learn more about our suiting program
