Awareness activities and tools
To fulfill its mission, the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation
supports the mobilization of local actors to encourage the creation
of family, educational and community environments that will enable
young Quebecers to develop their full potential, particularly those
living in underprivileged neighbourhoods.
In addition to local community actions, the Foundation supports
projects aimed at raising awareness and providing
information to parents and Quebec society as a whole.
A reliable, scientifically accurate source of information,
Naître et grandir has taken on the mission of providing
parents with day-to-day support in raising their children, from
conception up until age 8.
The mission of the Observatoire des tout-petits (Early
Childhood Observatory) is to help ensure that the development of
very young children is given priority in Quebec's social and
political agenda. To achieve this goal, the Observatory compiles
the most relevant and reliable data on 0-5 year-olds, prepares
thematic dossiers and encourages dialogue and reflection on
collective action in areas that have an impact on early childhood
