In March, Le Saint-Sulpice Montréal supports the Regroupement of Trisomy 21

Over the past year, the Hôtel Saint-Sulpice has been implementing a sustainable development program. In March, we are supporting Regroupement of Trisomy 21.

The principle is simple: we invite our guests who stay at the hotel for more than one night not to use the housekeeping service. By doing so, our guests are helping to reduce their ecological footprint, and they’re also contributing to our monthly collection, since for every day they refuse, the hotel donates $5 to a charity close to our hearts.

In March, Alice Jean-Tremblay, our Culture & Talents Coordinator, opted for the Regroupement of Trisomy 21.

”I have had a special affection for Down Syndrome group since I was young. When I was in elementary school in Quebec City, my best friend had Down syndrome. All the other kids asked me why I was friends with her. I never saw a difference between her and me. My fondest memories at school are with her. For my 18th birthday party, I collected donations for this organization and when I was asked what cause I would like to support for our green program, I did not hesitate to get involved with the Down Syndrome group. Plus, International Down Syndrome Day is March 21, a few days after my birthday. ” Alice Jean-Tremblay, our Culture & Talents Coordinator,

Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel supports the arthritis Society of Canada with its Green Program

In October, our collection will be dedicated to the Arthritis Society of Canada.

Sophie Légaré, our Housekeeping Manager, chose the Arthritis Society of Canada for the monthly fundraising from our Green Program. Sophie is particularly sensitive to this cause and explains why: ‘I chose this cause because my mother has suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis for 27 years. Thanks to the Arthritis Society of Canada, which covered the cost of treatment, my mother participated in trial treatments (as a guinea pig) REMICADE. Without these treatments, she would have been in a wheelchair and completely immobile for 25 years. I would like today to be able to collect a nice sum of money so that other people can benefit from their support in turn. I also have a very close friend who is only 47 years old, and who is no longer part of active life because of this same disease. It is a disease that is very painful for the person who has it. It immobilizes and in fact impacts all members of the family. It is relatively unknown and even children can be affected.’

Throughout the month of October, we invite guests who stay at the hotel to contribute to our collection by refusing housekeeping. For each refusal, the hotel Le Saint-Sulpice collects $5/day.

Since June, the hotel has launched the Green Program, which aims to promote all actions of sustainable and social development. Both through the financial support of organizations, but also in the daily management of the hotel: in waste management, energy saving, choice of suppliers, recycling…

In june we collect in favor of La Maison Répit Oasis

‘I chose this cause because having a family of 4 children we gravitate in a world where in our surroundings there seems to be more and more diagnosed cases. It’s still very taboo, there’s a lot of pressure to be superhero parents. Living this reality on a daily basis brings its share of additional challenges, and it is essential for parents to be able to count on this service.’

Mission of Maison Répit Oasis

In june we support Maison Répit oasis for all his service for the autistic persons they offer.Maison répit oasis offers support and respite to families who are responsible for the development of a person living with an intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorder.

To offer families a time of rest and rejuvenation that is essential to everyone’s harmony and quality of life. In addition, the services we offer promote integration by enabling participants to establish social contacts and live an enriching experience outside their family environment.

The main objective of the L’Envolée program is to use early stimulation to integrate children aged 0 to 5 who are significantly behind their age in one or more of the following areas: Motor skills (fine and/or global); Cognitive; Socio-emotional development; Communication (language); Activities of daily living (autonomy).

This month we are mobilizing for Earth Day Canada and our collection will be dedicated to them.

Each month, one of our employees chooses the organization or the cause that is close to his heart, and which will be the lucky recipient of our monthly collection.

Our green program, which will soon celebrate its 1 year, is an opportunity for our guest to participate in reducing our environmental footprint and to financially support (without paying money) an organization.

This month Charlotte Lemoine, our director of revenue, chose the association Earth Day Canada. Indeed, sensitive for many years to climate change, Charlotte is involved in the sustainable committee of the Hotel and participates in the many actions that the hotel deploys to protect the environment.

She explains the reasons for her choice:

‘The ecology has always been close to my heart. I love to travel and when I started to work in the tourism industry, I realized the importance of sustainable tourism to be able to protect this beautiful planet we love to explore. It was therefore natural that I wrote my master’s thesis on how compatible the luxury hotels and sustainable development can be. I am always very interested in finding new sustainable concrete actions.’

The collection of the hotel’s green program will be made in favor of Nature Quebec to protect biodiversity.

After having hosted COP 15 in Montreal for more than 15 days with more delegations from all over the world, it is only natural that Amandine Charroin, our events manager, has chosen the preservation of the biodiversity of our territory as the cause of the month of January. This is why the funds raised through our green program will be donated to Nature Québec.

“Last month, the city of Montreal hosted cop15, an international meeting on the theme of biodiversity. I wanted to follow up on this event by supporting the Nature Québec organization and particularly its biodiversity projects. Quebec offers us a rich living environment through its fauna and flora that we must preserve in order to pass it on to future generations. The number that struck me is 34: this is the number of caribou living today south of the Saint Lawrence, whereas there were hundreds of them just a few years ago… I would like us to contribute on our own scale to help these endangered species that are the image of Canada and its great natural spaces.’

The green program implemented since June 2022 consists of inviting guests staying at the hotel for a given month to refuse housekeeping during their stay. For each refusal, the hotel donates $5 to the foundation or organization chosen by one of our employees.

By participating in the green program, our guests contribute both to the preservation of the environment by reducing the use of household products and contribute financially to the cause of an NPO.

Nature Québec missions

Since 1981, Nature Québec (ex-UQCN) has been actively working for the conservation of natural environments and the sustainable use of resources in Québec. Our campaigns and projects affect biodiversity, forests, energy, climate and the urban environment. Supported by experts, the work of our team of professionals gives us recognized credibility in our areas of intervention. From Anticosti to the heart of cities, we act locally to meet global challenges related to climate and the environment.

We thank you in advance for your contribution!

In December, we collect for Humanity & Inclusion

The fundraising through our green program in favor of Humanity & Inclusion actions

December is upon us! It is both a month of the holiday season with preparations for Christmas, but also a month of generosity and sharing with the most vulnerable people.

A long-time volunteer with Humanity & Inclusion, I naturally wanted the collection of our green program set up since June, to be done in favor of this organization.
The choice of the month of December is not trivial either because December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities

How to participate in the collection for Humanity & Inclusion?

we collect in favor of Humanity & Inclusion

Disabled Fund/Nirmala and Khembro earthquake victims lost their legs. They received a prosthesis one month ago and learn how to walk at the National Disabled Fund.

We invite all hotel guests staying in December to opt out of housekeeping service. For each refusal of service, the hotel contributes to the collection up to $5/day of refusal. For our guests, no additional cost, and they contribute both to the collection but also to an environmental action. Of course we refresh the towels as needed!

I support the actions of Humanity & Inclusion because it is an organization that works on the ground (whether in times of war, natural disasters or other context of global crisis) and which provides concrete solutions to vulnerable people whose lives is transformed in the depths of their body overnight. These adults, or these children who lose the use of their arm, their leg, need our help and our financial support. Humanity & Inclusion through its many action and intervention components, allows them to better live with their disability, for example by allowing them to benefit from prostheses, ramps to go to school or infrastructure for promote their mobility and their integration into society. Our donation also makes it possible to finance equipment to disarm anti-personnel mines that are still too numerous in the world…

Marc-André Dandeneau, General Manager of Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal, explains the reasons for his choice to support this CHU Sainte-Justine foundation.

‘November 20, 2022 will be the International Children’s Day.  The well-being of children is very relative from one country to another.  Not all children have the chance to grow up safely or have access to all the resources they need to thrive.  In Canada, there is also a great disparity between regions and many children grow up in poverty.  We must ensure that, at the grassroots level, children have the right to the same level of education and have access to a good health system. I chose the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation because they make sure to offer quality pediatric care to children from all backgrounds without judgment.’


Collect of le saint-sulpice hotel montreal for the benefit of CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation

Guided by its engagement, solidarity, authenticity and responsible leadership, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation’s mission is to engage the community and support the CHU Sainte-Justine in its pursuit of excellence and its commitment to providing children and mothers with one of the highest levels of health care in the world, now and in the future.

Since its beginnings in 1987, the Foundation has been engaging the community to make the CHU Sainte-Justine what it is today and what it will be tomorrow: a world-class university health centre that is building a healthier future for mothers and children.

The foundation regularly launches major donation campaigns to support health projects for children and their mothers.

We are happy to be able to contribute on our scale to tomorrow’s projects for better health for all children who have to deal with the disease.
