Meet our guests of honor

“I will meet Béatrice Picard, with whom I worked for over 15 years on the set of Virginie at Radio-Canada. She played my grandmother! She is one of the reasons why I said yes to the proposal for the Salon des aînés of Saint-Jérôme.” – Chantal Fontaine

“Little Brothers invite you to our booth to meet our team, discover our actions, and discuss volunteering opportunities with elderly people.

Come chat with me and learn more about our commitment to breaking loneliness and isolation in old age.”

About the Salon des aînés of Saint-Jérôme

Born from a concerted wish in 2016 by the municipal council of the City of Saint-Jérôme, the CISSS des Laurentides, and the TRARA, the Salon des aînés aims to centralize information for seniors and allow them easy access to resources. It also aims to promote active aging, curb ageism, and provide an educational information opportunity.

Since the first edition in September 2017, this event has established itself as a major gathering for the community. Little Brothers proudly support this initiative as a partner.
