Claude Meunier, Fondation du CHUM’s Volunteer Spokesperson

“ To me, the CHUM is the talent, the excellence and the passion serving the patients. This hospital is not only benefiting those living today, but future generations as well. It responds to the most complex needs of our entire society, thanks to its hi-tech facilities and emphasis on staff training.”

Québec playwright and actor Claude Meunier has been the new face of the Fondation du CHUM as its volunteer spokesperson since June 2016. Why? His answer is simple: for the patients.

His partner, Virginie Coossa, supports him in his work, while spreading the word about the Fondation’s mission at many events.


Jonathan Drouin, Fondation du CHUM’s Ambassador
#92 of the Canadiens de Montréal

“My goal is to encourage others to get involved and to understand the importance of CHUM in our society. I was touched to see the CHUM’s great achievements and their impact on million of people’s health. All these efforts deserve to be supported.”

Since September 2017, the Fondation has the pleasure to be able to count on its new ambassador : Montreal Canadiens #92, JONATHAN DROUIN. The 22-year-old hockey player has pledged to make a personal donation of half a million dollar,
thus $50,000 annually for the next 10 years.

Moreover, he will actively participate in several of the Fondation’s major fundraising activities and he hopes
to raise another 5 million dollars through them. In particular, we will see him at the annual golf tournaments, at a ball hockey match involving other NHL players and cultural and business personalities, and at several other activities.
