CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation

It was the year 2000. A then four-year-old Sébastien found himself in the Sainte-Justine trauma care unit with a serious cut to his right wrist. The experience left a lasting impression on him, his family and the adult he would grow into. So much so, in fact, that 21 years later, he decided to make arrangements for a planned gift to the Foundation through a life insurance policy. In so doing, he is paving the way for the next generation of committed young people.


Since 2012, the owners of McGill Real Estate and Engel & Völkers have been committed to helping the families of Sainte-Justine. Learn more about this family whose hearts are definitely in the right place.

Thank you! -  on your sleeve  

Giving the Gift of the Future

Pierre Boivin, Philanthropist and Corporate Executive

As we celebrate National Philanthropy Day, we would like to thank you for making hope come alive for today’s children and the adults they will become. They are our future. Let’s continue to be theirs.


When our youth shine, our entire society shines. Join them in once again making the Tree of Lights a beacon of hope for Sainte-Justine!

Claude-André Boivin, father

Édouard, my bright, shining boy, you were the wings that lifted us up. For you, we would’ve flown all the way to the moon. I like to think that these wings will eventually lead us to the answer that unlocks your treasure. We will use them to keep flying, in search of our quest, only differently than before.

Anne-Marie Paradis, mother and donor

When I found out I was carrying twins, it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I was elated, and a little in shock. I couldn’t believe it. I basked in a few weeks of absolute bliss before it all came tumbling down.
