About Quebec Society for Disabled Children:

Founded in 1930, the Quebec Society for Disabled Children (QSDC) is an organization dedicated to defending the rights of children with disabilities and to the promotion of integration and equal opportunities. QSDC offers adapted services that enable disabled children to achieve their full potential, and addresses the special needs of the families. QSDC’s largest program is Camp Papillon, one of the largest vacation camps for disabled children in North America. Each year, the camp hosts about 700 campers during regular stays. Campers benefit from the services of medical staff, as well as a range of sports, cultural and outdoor activities.

Other programs include a daycare (Garderie Papillon), where 70 disabled children under the age of five benefit from specialized services and a tailored educational program, and a residence (Résidence Papillon) at which disabled children are cared for by dedicated counsellors in order to offer parents a brief respite. QSDC also offers a resource centre (Carrefour Papillon) to serve parents looking for references and information pertaining to disabilities.

Financial Review:

In F2014, QSDC’s administrative costs were 8% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 21% of donations and special events fundraising. QSDC has funding reserves of $110k, which cover 3% of annual program costs. In F2013 and F2012, QSDC had capital expenditures of $378k and $248k respectively.

The salary data presented at right is taken from QSDC’s T3010 declaration to the CRA in 2012; the data reported to the CRA for F2013 seem to be inaccurate.
