La Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau

The Fondation Charles-Bruneau

Since 1990, the Fondation Charles-Bruneau’s mission is to give all children with cancer the best chances of recovery by funding research and support the development of projects in the area of pediatric oncology.

The Foundation is proud to now be present in all four university hospitals serving customers in pediatric oncology in Quebec: at Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau at CHU Sainte-Justine, CHUS in Sherbrooke, CHU in Quebec City, and Montreal Children’s Hospital.

This means that all children with cancer in Quebec are treated in a Charles-Bruneau Unit.

90% of the Foundation's revenues come from fundraising activities.

Total profits raised through the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau will be distribute to the different programs and projects supported by the Fondation.

Where do the donations go?

The Foundation recently pledged to invest $22 million in the CHU Sainte-Justine.

This initiative is  aimed at better targeting the features of each tumor and thus making a more accurate diagnosis, identifying the anomalies involved, and drawing on targeted therapies to treat them. This approach paves the way for the discovery of biological markers of efficacy, genetic markers that, once detected, will provide clues as to the most effective treatment to prescribe and the probable progress of the disease. The goal is to improve quality of life after recovery, free of side-effects or complications.


Over the past 28 years, the sum of $15 million has been invested in research, and an additional $40 million has gone toward the construction, procurement and development of a Cancer Centre, a research center and three Charles-Bruneau units in Québec.
