A patron who makes hearts smile

In 2012, Céline Dion and the late René Angélil expanded their role to become lifetime patrons of the largest mother and child university health centre in Canada. Forever bound by her love of children, Céline Dion continues to embody an exceptional generosity that touches the hearts of all those who are part of the extended Sainte-Justine family. What an honour it is to have a patron who displays such humanity and generosity of spirit!


Touched by love

Guy A Lepage wants to give back to the institution that changed his family’s life. His son is alive and well today thanks to the CHU Sainte-Justine’s medical teams. In October 2018, he proudly announced his role as an official ambassador for the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation, at the launch of the Love is Contagious campaign.

Guy A. Lepage, a kid in his arm
The teams at Sainte-Justine are there every day to care for children, the same way as they were for us. With the same drive, determination and compassion. For Sainte-Justine, it might not have been much, but for us, it was everything. Today, I can hold my son in my arms and do so proudly, as a donor and ambassador for the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation.

Friends committed to Sainte-Justine

Besides our patron and our ambassador, there are the Friends of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation: individuals who get involved in our fundraisers and who are staunchly committed to championing our work. We are delighted to be able to count on them and their continued support.
