$15 million donation to Fondation du CHUM


There was excitement and emotion in the air on February 13 at the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) when our President, Pierre Karl Péladeau, announced a generous $15 million contribution to the Fondation du CHUM. It is the largest donation in Quebecor’s history. Mr. Péladeau proudly pointed out that the donation continues the philanthropic work of his father, Pierre Péladeau, and will leave a valuable legacy for future generations.

When life has been good to you, you have to give something back.

This major gift will support the CHUM’s efforts to maintain the highest levels of excellence in care, research and teaching in order to heal the sick and improve the health of Quebecers.


In recognition of the donation, which is the largest it has received to date, the CHUM is naming its new auditorium after Pierre Péladeau. The Péladeau family is deeply honoured.
