Inspired by its motto “Building the future with youth“, and with the support of its partners and donors in the real estate industry, such as Groupe Petra; the Foundation will be able to continue to use its expertise and invest primarily in the real estate needs of Montreal organizations whose mandate is to help young people in difficult living conditions or suffering from disabilities.

For example, the Foundation supports various organizations and projects, including the Ancre des Jeunes in the construction of an urban educational greenhouse to accompany an urban agriculture module aimed at restoring the importance of food in the eyes of young people and mobilizing them around a concrete project;
