We’re taking care of our people !

How ? By funding each year more than $1 million in medical equipment, in projects to improve the quality of life of beneficiaries, in training, research and education and in improving infrastructures.
We’re here from the beginning to the end of life, to treat wounds, accompany births, soothe mental health problems, support our elders in their living environments and much more. We fund projects in physical health, mental health, prevention, public health and support for vulnerable communities. We are the expression of a community that takes care of its people. We are a PROFOUNDLY HUMAN movement.
In 40 years, more than $40 million have been raised for projects related to our mission.
To provide quality care and services to Laval’s community, every donation is important. Cité de la Santé Foundation makes it possible to aquire state-of-the-art medical equipment. It also helps support research and education allowing quality and local care, now and for generations to come. It supports the deployment of projects and initiatives that aim to improve the quality of life of beneficiaries, often among the most vulnerable populations in Laval (young people housed in Youth Centers, seniors with loss of autonomy, refugees, etc.). Finally, Cité de la Santé Foundation helps supporting the development of skills and the training of employees of the CISSS de Laval, so they can constantly renew their motivation to provide the best care possible.
BECAUSE WE ARE ALL CONCERNED BY HEALTH.
BECAUSE WE ARE ALL DEPENDENT ON IT, BUT ALSO THE ACTORS.
BECAUSE WE ALL WIN WITH HEALTH.
GIVE HER THE BEST OF OURSELVES.
