Francophone Expansion

Reaching Francophone Communities across Canada

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is excited to serve more people in Francophone communities across Canada. 

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada's Montreal office officially opened October 22, 2014. This expansion allows for better brain tumour patient care in Quebec to be addressed, with increased advocacy with the provincial government, and also for more information, education, support groups for all Francophones across Canada.  

The morning of October 22 started with a press conference that included an announcement of the official presence of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in Quebec and presentations by Dr David Fortin, Simon-Oliver Fecteau and one of the founders of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, Dr Rolando Del Maestro.

See the photos of the launch event:

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada passionately serves the needs of all Canadians on the brain tumour journey. We are pleased that we have a presence that will allow us to more diligently serve French-speaking Canadians.  

Should you see an area of opportunity for Francophone Communities across Canada to be better served by Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, we would love to hear from you!
