Annie Lemieux

The Lise Watier Foundation is particularly close to my heart because it helps women become financially independent, for themselves, their families and their children.

Having grown up in a family of builders and visionaries, I became involved in the family business at a very young age. My activities as a leader have led me over the years to discover the importance of women entrepreneurs, and especially the pleasure of working in this environment.

There is a great support group among businesswomen inviting other women entrepreneurs to join the ranks. I also encourage and support young people to develop and assert themselves in an environment where they have their place. As a sports enthusiast, I enjoy coaching young people in entrepreneurship; this is what motivates me to participate in this cause with enthusiasm!

Write an encouraging message

The participants of the Let’s Start Up program of the Lise Watier Foundation have experienced situations of vulnerability. They are now working hard to find their way back to financial independence. Help them believe in themselves and spread their wings by writing them an encouraging message! 

$5 will be donated by our partner EPIDERMA for each message written. 

Thank you for believing in them.

Having access to training, personalized support, an expanded professional network and financial aid can transform a woman’s life. The Foundation and its campaign ambassadors are convinced of this, and we are therefore inviting you to join support for the Believe in her campaign. Thank you for your precious support!

Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
