The CJF was incorporated on November 27, 1979 and in 1989 merged with the Phil Pugsley Memorial Fund started by the Montreal JCI Senate Club after they received a $1,000 donation from Marion Pugsley.
- The next merger of funds was in 1996 from the 1984 Montreal World Congress Fund.
In 2001 an agreement was reached with the Canada Junior Chamber of Commerce Building Foundation (CJCCBF) to manage $160,300 on their behalf while providing annual transfers to JCI Canada.
In 2004 the CJF entered into a similar agreement with the BC & Yukon Junior Chamber of Commerce and currently manage $50,000 on their behalf. In addition to the above funds there have been donations from numerous members and chapters as well as a number of in-memoriam donations to acknowledge the great work of many former Jaycees and Senators.
