Arts and culture

Culture is an important vehicle for innovation and social transformation.

Preferred areas of intervention:

  • Projects facilitating access to the arts and culture
  • Initiatives maximizing the impact of the arts and culture as a societal development tool
  • Initiatives promoting the development of entrepreneurial skills among young people in the cultural sector

The Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier and the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre represent the cornerstone of our interventions in this field.

Education

In any community, education is one of the main keys to development. To do this, education must be accessible and adaptable to the needs of all and innovative.

Preferred areas of intervention:

  • Projects favouring the transfer of expertise and knowledge by bringing universities closer to the community
  • Establishment of university scholarship funds
  • Development of entrepreneurial qualities
  • Specialized schools for clienteles with special learning needs
  • Initiatives to promote school perseverance

The Foundation also manages two scholarship programs intended for specific clienteles:

Health

A healthy society is based on the development of medical knowledge and care, but also on a better understanding of social issues and access to appropriate resources.

Preferred areas of intervention:

  • Initiatives for prevention, awareness and education on health issues
  • Support in adapting to change after a diagnosis or hospitalization
  • Improving the quality of life of people affected by health problems (patients, people living with a disability, family caregivers)

We pay special attention to three areas of care that affect thousands of Canadians:

  • cardiovascular diseases
  • cancer
  • mental health

Community support

Organizations working in the social sector are in direct contact with the most pressing issues. They help to tighten the sometimes distended mesh of the social fabric.

Preferred areas of intervention:

  • Popular education
  • Community and citizen involvement
  • Social inclusion (access to housing, employability, diversity)
  • Social Innovation
  • Psychosocial intervention
  • Youth and families
  • Emergency relief in the event of natural or humanitarian disasters
  • Front-line and food security

Finally, the Foundation offers grants for Women Entrepreneurs.
