Support for New Pathways Foundation Warms the Heart!




Wendake, July 11, 2023 – The New Pathways Foundation extends its gratitude for the donation of over $6,500 from the Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec for camp equipment.


Thanks to the support of Mr. Michel Cardinal, the owner of the Quebec Canadian Tire store, the New Pathways Foundation has received support from the Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec through the Charitable Donations program. This program was established to help charitable organizations within the communities of the 100 Canadian Tire stores in Quebec.


The donation of various equipment, valued at over $6,500, offered by the Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec, is of great assistance to the New Pathways Foundation. Through this generous contribution, the New Pathways Foundation can expand its impact and enhance the experience of its Camps initiative. Young participants will have access to a wide range of quality equipment, enabling them to engage in exciting sports and recreational activities. This donation reinforces the New Pathways Foundation’s commitment to youth and contributes to the positive impact of Camps on their physical, emotional, and social development.

Thanks to their generosity, the New Pathways Foundation can continue to offer quality and enriching opportunities for youth, helping them discover new pathways.” – Marie-Claude Cleary, Executive Director, Innue of Mashteuiatsh
