Who We Are

Vision, Mission and Values

The Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation is determined to provide a better and healthier future for children in need. Since its inception in August 2000, the Foundation has donated close to $25 million to over 700 charitable endeavors throughout the province of Quebec working for the well-being of underprivileged children.

The Foundation fulfills its mandate in two ways: first, through a unique flagship project – the BLEU BLANC BOUGE program – which consists of building community refrigerated and multisport rinks; secondly by providing financial support to organizations whose projects and programs enable children to adopt healthy lifestyles by being more active.

Our Vision

Provide a better and healthier future for underprivileged children all across Quebec.

Our Mission

By uniting the members of the great Canadiens family and by teaming up with the community, the Foundation encourages physical activity and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle among underprivileged youth from 4 to 17 years old.

Our Values

Accessibility: We want to provide children in need with the same benefits as others of their age: give them the opportunity to experience the benefits of a healthy life, participate in sports and leisure activities. We want them to live unique moments and experiences that are otherwise impossible to have. Our actions are intended to ensure that their journey to a better and healthier life is free of hurdles.

Generosity: Our actions are driven by the desire to contribute significantly to the most deprived youths. Fortunate to be part of the Canadiens family, we are grateful and wish to give back to the community that supports us with loyalty and passion. With a genuine caring for the youth, we make sure our donations have a profound impact on their lifestyle.

Teamwork: Teamwork is a priority within our organization. We encourage and favor dialogue and collaboration between the different actors working with kids, to help each other in projects and partnerships that have the well-being of youths as common goal.

Excellence: The needs are great and the challenges to achieve our objectives are even greater. We are ready to provide the necessary efforts to outdo ourselves. We are on the lookout for best practices, we do not hesitate to ask questions and to challenge ourselves to ensure the relevance of our actions. We are confident of achieving what may seem inaccessible and thus, improve the health and lives of youths.
