Watier, Jean Coutu and Brunet join forces to support the Foundation 

For the second year in a row, Watier, Jean Coutu and Brunet are joining forces to support the Lise Watier Foundation and help local women achieve financial independence.  

From August 25 to September 21, $10 will be donated to the Foundation with the purchase of a Rouge Gourmand lipstick by Watier at Jean Coutu or Brunet, all shades included. 

“It’s heartwarming to see these large companies mobilize to support the professional development of women. Each year, more than 150 women benefit from the Foundation’s Let’s Start Up program. With training, coaching and financial support, women regain confidence in their abilities and are ready to develop a professional project that will lead them to financial independence,” explains Marie-Lise Andrade, President and CEO of the Lise Watier Foundation. 

Make a difference by helping the Lise Watier Foundation support more women by purchasing your lipstick! Thanks to your contribution, more women will become entrepreneurs, obtain a post-secondary degree or find a job that matches their ambitions. 

Do yourself a favor and get your lipstick now by visiting a Jean Coutu or Brunet store or buy it online! 

By purchasing this product and making this gesture of solidarity, you are concretely contributing to : 

  • To help local women find a professional path that meets their expectations;
  • Restore their self-esteem and confidence in their abilities;
  • Offer them opportunity to develop their skills and potential;  
  • Encourage women entrepreneurship;  
  • Create a richer and fairer society.  


Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up Journey in Montreal, Quebec City, the Laurentians, Montérégie, Sherbrooke and Toronto. More than 300 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up Journey. 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.
