A win-win project!

Participating in the Foundation’s Loto-Voyage is a chance to win a cash prize or a travel credit to the destination of your choice ($70,000 in prizes to be won, 1 draw per week from February 5 to October 14, 2020).

The Loto-Voyage makes it possible to finance projects submitted BY employees of the Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Laval (CISSS). You therefore contribute to financing innovative projects that change the daily lives of CISSS users.

For example, in 2019, the Loto-Voyage made it possible to finance the redevelopment of a balcony for young people housed at the Centre de protection de l’enfance et de la jeunesse, the purchase of equipment for quiet rooms, as well as the purchase of various equipment at the Cité-de-la-Santé Hospital.

300 km pour la VIE

Défi vélo 300 km pour la VIE

The Défi vélo 300 km pour la VIE is a flagship event of the Cité de la Santé Foundation.

Ride alongside our ambassador for a second year: Mr. Jean-Michel Anctil!
