This amount does not include the extraordinary gift of $1 million recently received by the Foundation from Mr. Yves Tremblay and Ms. Sylvie Villeneuve.
A few days ago, Roch Brisson, Administrator of the Foundation, and Marc Villeneuve, Acting CEO of the Foundation, presented a cheque for $2,223,940 to Dr. Bernard Leduc, CEO of Montfort, to acknowledge the Foundation's total annual contribution to Hôpital Montfort and the Institut du Savoir Montfort.
The members of the Association confirmed the appointment of Mr. Pierre Lanctôt as Treasurer of the Board of Directors. Mr. Lanctôt joins the Board of Trustees' management team, composed of Mr. Carl Nappert, President, Ms. Andrée-Anne Martel, Vice-President and Ms. Marie-Josée Martel, Secretary.
