Aware of the organizational constraints specific to non profits, the Foundation is committed to maintain a simple and efficient system for processing applications. We try to be as transparent as possible in our expectations and our process in order to facilitate preparation of applications by the applicant organizations.

Application period

The Foundation accepts applications all year round.

The applicant organizations will receive a response within a maximum of 90 days after receipt of their application by the Foundation, except for the summer period, when the maximum period is 120 days.

Organizations may submit an application every 12 months.

Preparing the application

The Foundation does not use a standard application form. We prefer to receive personalized applications reflecting the character of each applicant organization.

Every application must be composed of the following documents:

  • A letter of application indicating the support requested and the period during which the funds will be used.
  • A brief presentation of the organization, its fields of activity and its objectives (2 to 4 pages maximum)
  • In the case of a project, a description of the project and the implementation budget (including the financial partners involved, if applicable).
  • A copy of the organization’s letters patent (only in the case of a first-time application).
  • A copy of the most recent audited financial statements.
  • The list of members of the Board of Directors.
  • A copy of the last annual report or activity report.

NEW – To facilitate submission and follow-up of applications, we have developed a short identification sheet for applicant organizations. This document must be included with each application submitted to us:

The applications must be sent through our secured WeTransfer site,

Logo wetransfer WeTransfer

or by mail to the following address:

J. Armand Bombardier Foundation
1155 Rue Metcalfe, Suite 2100
Montréal, Québec H3B 2V6

It is unnecessary to send an application by express courier. We encourage applicants to avoid these needless expenses.

Please note that:

  • Due to the many applications submitted to us and to favour follow-up visits for active donations, we cannot accept requests for meetings with applicant organizations.

    However, do not hesitate to call us to ask more specific questions or to verify your application’s compatibility with the Foundation’s interests.
