Cancerto benefit events

Each year, our Cancerto benefit events bring the business community together from every region of Quebec. Thanks to their support, we can help thousands of Quebecers facing cancer as well as their loved ones.   

Help us make a concrete difference by participating in the Cancerto benefit evening in your region, an event that combines a musical show, magical moments and unique encounters. Cancer unfortunately affects everyone directly or indirectly, your support is essential. Stand with us this fall for the 2023 edition of the Cancerto series. 

Since 2012, the Cancerto benefit events have raised over $5,3 million in support of the Foundation.
