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 tending to patients 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 Fondation's revenue comes from fundraising activities. Total profits raised through the Circuit bleu Charles-Bruneau will be distribute to the different programs and projects supported by the Fondation.

Where do the donations go?

The Charles-Bruneau Foundation is proud to be the largest funder of pediatric hematology oncology research in Quebec. The latest commitments announced are necessary to allow major breakthroughs in research.

In the coming years:
  • $ 22 million will be invested in the Charles-Bruneau Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Research Unit at the CHU Sainte-Justine.
  • $ 4 million will also be donated to the Montreal Children's Hospital.
In the last 28 years, more than $55 million has been invested in research and in the construction, development and procurement of equipment for the Centre as well as three pediatric oncology units.


Proud to have set up specialized facilities that are better adapted to the needs of families, the Fondation now intends to maximize its investments in the development of research. Two objectives will serve to guide researchers: finding a cure for the 20% of children whose cancer is resistant to treatment, and improving the quality of life of children in remission so that they can enjoy a true recovery, free of side-effects and complications.
