The comedy evening featuring the impersonator Michaël Rancourt, which served as funding for the Atelier occupationnel Rive-Sud, presented on September 29 under the honorary presidency of Martin Lafrance, of the Martin Lafrance Philanthropic Fund, brought together some 200 spectators and raised $60,000, a new mark. Founded in 1969, the Occupational Workshop Rive-Sud was formed by a group of parents of children living with an intellectual disability. L’Atelier offers companies tailor-made outsourcing services that ensure significant savings in time and money.

The Maurice-Tanguay Foundation took advantage of the recent fundraising evening for the Occupational Workshop Rive-Sud to give it $25,000. The Occupational Workshop Rive-Sud, with its 75 workers under the supervision of an experienced team, is a non-profit organization. It offers a work environment adapted to adults who have an intellectual or physical disability and for whom access to the labor market would otherwise be difficult. By using the services of the Atelier, you will therefore support, at the same time, an essential social mission. Pictured, in usual order:Guillaume Gagnon, Maurice-Tanguay Foundation; France Tanguay of the Atelier and Pierre-Luc Jean, president of the Rive-Sud occupational workshop.  

Emeritus Professors

After making a profound and lasting impact on their respective scientific fields, Professors Jean-Pierre Brun and Hélène Lee-Gosselin(photos), from the Faculty of Administrative Sciences (FSA) of Laval University, were recently promoted to the rank of emeritus by the University Council. The title of professor emeritus is an honor bestowed on a professor who has ceased to exercise his regular functions after having distinguished himself in teaching or research at the University. This is the highest recognition that Université Laval can bestow on a member of its faculty. Jean-Pierre Brun is a pioneer in the field of occupational health and safety management. Hélène Lee-Gosselin has distinguished herself throughout her career for her avant-garde research on employment equality, female entrepreneurship and the place of women in decision-making bodies. They will be honored at a ceremony to be held on November 22. Kudos to both of you
