In addition to our corporate engagement with organizations in the communities where we do business, we are always ready to assist our employees and partners in advancing causes close to their hearts. We want to be a force for positive change in society, and to do this we make financial and human contributions to a range of organizations across the province. Here are some examples of the foundations and causes we proudly support, along with our employees.
Fondation des Gouverneurs de l’espoir
The Fondation des Gouverneurs de l’espoir brings hope and a better life to seriously ill children, providing them with the best possible conditions to help them make the most of every day of their lives. The foundation also provides financial aid to families that could not otherwise afford the time their children need, and emotional support in the most difficult times.
The Mira Foundation works to help people with one or more visual or mobility disabilities become more independent and fully integrated in their society, by providing trained service dogs to guide them and respond to their needs, at no cost to the beneficiary. Mira also makes life easier for many children on the autism spectrum.
Défi Chic-Chocs (Rimouski regional hospital foundation)
The Défi Chic-Chocs supports the Fondation du Centre hospitalier régional de Rimouski, raising funds to support projects that improve the quality of health care and services in eastern Quebec. The 2017 challenge raised $53,000 to purchase vital equipment for people suffering from lung problems.
Fondation du Cégep de Matane
The main objective of the Fondation du Cégep de Matane is to raise and manage funds to be used for promoting the development and advancement of education and teaching, supporting research, stimulating innovation, and taking up the challenge of excellence in the cégep’s catchment area, and to provide more extensive services to the regional community.
