About Opération Enfant Soleil:
Founded in 1988, Opération Enfant Soleil raises funds for “the development of high-quality paediatrics and to contribute to social health projects for all children in Quebec.” The charity distributes the funds to four major paediatric centres in Québec: the CHU de Québec’s Centre mère-enfant Soleil, the CHU Sainte-Justine in Montréal, the Montreal Children’s Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre, and the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS. It also makes more than 130 grants each year to other organizations and regional hospitals. The grant money is used to acquire state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, and specialized equipment for treatment. Since its inception, the charity has distributed over $190m throughout the province of Québec. In F2015, Opération Enfant Soleil granted $11.5m to almost 140 recipients, in 17 different regions.
Opération Enfant Soleil’s most important fundraising activity is its Telethon. With over 2,000 volunteers, the charity runs a 25-hour live television broadcast, featuring entertainers, artists, and children ambassadors. The event aims to show how people can come together to support sick children and their families.
