Promoting the development of children in vulnerable situations

The Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec is dedicated to the development of children and adults living in vulnerable situations by offering respite stays and camps at its Base de plein air Bon départ.

It also supports various community organizations in order to improve the quality of life of children and their families, notably by contributing to the development of healthy lifestyle habits and to their well-being.

Over the past 33 years, we have donated $ 30 million to support charitable organizations and to support our Base de plein air Bon départ programs.

An Exemplary Commitment by Québec’s 100 Canadian Tire Stores

Québec’s Canadian Tire stores are at the heart of the foundation’s generosity movement. Without the Dealers, the foundation would simply not exist. And without the commitment of the store teams, the foundation would not be able to achieve its mission: to help Québec’s vulnerable children and families.
