Quebecor’s President and CEO, Pierre Karl Péladeau, announced that Quebecor is supporting the Autiste & Majeur Foundation with a generous $1 million donation to help fund the development of day centres for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across Québec.
I salute Charles Lafortune’ and Sophie Prégent’s commitment and dedication to helping adults with autism. We know this is a trying daily challenge for many Québec families and we are very happy to be supporting this vitally important cause.
This issue is at the heart of the Autiste, bientôt majeur and Autiste, maintenant majeur docuseries, broadcast on MOI ET CIE, on which Quebecor Content has had the pleasure of collaborating and co-producing with Charles and Sophie.
Quebecor's major commitment will enable the Foundation to set up day centres and improve existing services in partnership with organizations that are already well established in their communities and have expertise in working with people with ASD.
The entire Quebecor family will be behind the Foundation and its efforts to give young adults with autism and their parents access to suitable facilities that meet their needs and improve their quality of life.
Meet the families supported by the Foundation through this video which presents their reality and the positive impacts that the day centers will have on their daily lives.
