Mois des Câlins de Sainte‑Justine

Since 2006, an immense wave of love for the children and families of Sainte-Justine has swept across Quebec every February, as we celebrate the Mois des Câlins. Year after year, the community is invited to show their support for the hospital’s commitment to excellence by purchasing one of 30,000 Rose Câlins Lip Perfectors by Clarins, available exclusively through Jean Coutu. Half of the proceeds from these sales will go toward helping young patients and mothers-to-be at Sainte-Justine.

Embracing the cause, transforming lives

Thanks to the public’s enthusiastic support of the campaign and our loyal partners at Rythme, Jean Coutu and Clarins, close to $6 million has been raised since the Mois des Câlins was first launched. These funds make it possible to leverage every opportunity to advance pediatric care, now and in the future. This sure sign of confidence is comforting for families like nine-year-old Milane’s, and empowering for the healthcare professionals at Sainte-Justine, encouraging them to grow beyond what they once thought possible and provide an ever-higher level of care. 

Growing beyond our wildest dreams

Sainte-Justine’s teams are dedicated to ensuring every child in Quebec has access to the very best health care from the womb onward, taking into account crucial variables like their genetic profiles and the environment they live in. With your help, the teams at Sainte-Justine have everything they need to push forward toward new frontiers. 

When a child is admitted to Sainte-Justine, multiple resources are activated to make the patient journey as efficient and as seamless as possible. Your generous donations to the 18th annual Mois des Câlins campaign will help make sure each young patient receives condition-appropriate care. 

Your support for Sainte-Justine will turbo-charge the multidisciplinary teams who work together to develop innovative treatments and personalized solutions. Not only that, but it will show families from across Quebec that they are not alone in their struggle.  

Thank you for being there for us as we transform lives, for life.

Our drawing contest is back!

Every year, budding artists aged 5 to 12 from across the province are invited to submit their drawings to the Dessine-moi un câlin contest and show their love for the children and families of Sainte-Justine.
