Chaired by Isabelle Langlois, SVP Performance, Management l Business Intelligence at Rodeo FX, this second edition of our signature event for the new generation of philanthropists will highlight our mission.

Past fundraising events

The Habanera Ball

On October 13, the Foundation organized the Habanera Ball, a grandiose evening that allowed us to raise more than $1,125,000 in net profits. Under the honorary presidency of Novacap, this event took our 700 guests on a journey to the heart of Havana, under the flowers and palm trees and lulled by the Cuban rhythms.

« Pour un avenir meilleur » event

For several years now, the Guy Côté – National Bank Financial – Family Wealth Management Team has organized the « Pour un avenir meilleur » event to benefit the Lise Watier Foundation.


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.
