Causes that matter to us
Fondation Olo gives families an equal chance of bringing a healthy baby into the world and of introducing them to healthy eating habits early on.
Our support for the Fondation Olo is directly linked to our wish to contribute to the health of youth and families, which is why we are proud to support the initiatives of this organization since 2003.
The CHU Sainte-Justine's mission is to improve health on the whole which constitutes a complete state of physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being of children, teenagers and mothers of Quebec in affiliation with our health care, university and research partners.
Since 2014, we have been pleased to offer free travel insurance without exclusions related to pre-existing conditions to young patients at CHU Sainte-Justine under care in hematology and oncology. In 2018, young neurology patients were also added to this group.
The mission of the Dr. Clown Foundation is to bring joy to the most vulnerable people of our society thanks to a personalized and relational approach with hospitalized children, students in specialized school environments, patients of all ages in general hospitals and elderly people in healthcare facilities.
For several years, we have been happy to offer financial assistance to the Dr. Clown Foundation by supporting their mental health initiatives associated with therapeutic clowns in child psychiatry and by ensuring the continuity of their programs.
