Quebecor increases its support for adapted housing for adults with multiple disabilities with $300,000 donation to Le Pilier Foundation

Le Pilier Foundation is pleased to announce that Quebecor, a loyal partner since 2005, has deepened its commitment with an additional $300,000 contribution to support Maison Québecor. The donation will make it possible to carry out several important projects, including the purchase of a customized van to transport people with disabilities, refurbishment of the residence, and more adapted recreational activities and outings for its residents. Nine adults with multiple intellectual and/or physical disabilities reside in Le Pilier Foundation’s adapted housing facility, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.


Maison Québecor is making a tangible, positive difference in the lives of its residents. In addition to providing food and shelter for people living with a physical or intellectual disability, the organization helps them develop autonomy, gradually become part of the community and build self-confidence. The Foundation and its dedicated staff become a warm and caring second family for residents. We are proud that Quebecor’s support will enable the Foundation to pursue its mission of promoting the well-being of people with disabilities

Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor


The Le Pilier Foundation is like a family for people with disabilities and their loved ones, said Johanne Desjardins, Executive Director, Philanthropy, Development and Communications of the Le Pilier Foundation. Quebecor’s long-term commitment has enabled us to concretely improve their well-being and their daily lives. The Foundation is privileged to be able to count on increased support from Quebecor.


Quebecor’s first contribution, in 2005, made it possible to expand Le Pilier Foundation’s residence in Laval and improve the quality of life of 9 residents with multiple disabilities. It was renamed the Maison Québecor in 2007.
