Déjeun’aide – Breakfast with Leaders presented by Bell Canada, featuring André Beaulieu, SVP, Corporate Services

Our unique networking event will be held on Friday, November 3rd at Yoko Luna from 7:00 am to 9:30 am.

To view the list of leaders, please see the "Our Leaders" section above.

In support of The Children’s Foundation, Breakfast with Leaders provides an opportunity for students and ambitious young professionals to network with business, social and community leaders over an intimate and friendly breakfast.

In addition to providing students and young professionals the opportunity to sit with a business leader, the event will also allow leaders to mentor and engage with the next generation of enthusiastic professionals.

This year, the Breakfast with Leaders team will raise funds to help meet The Children's most urgent needs and give young patients back their little mischievous side.

Please join us to help shape pediatric care for our young patients! This gathering is geared towards a demographic that is looking to give back at the start of their career. This generation is exceptionally community-minded and cause-oriented, with an eye towards bridging the gap between fun and philanthropy. It is of this philosophy that the Young Leaders Circle (YLC) was born.

Thank you to our sponsors

All the funds raised will go towards the Healthy Kids Fund to support the Hospital’s most urgent needs, to help with the purchase of medical and surgical equipment or to fund innovative programs for instance.

By supporting the Healthy Kids Fund, you give the Hospital the flexibility to direct funds where they are needed most and when needed most. Donations may be used to:

  • Purchase life-saving medical equipment
  • Fund research into childhood diseases, such as diabetes and cancer
  • Teach the next generation of doctors and nurses
  • Helping families facing financial difficulties due to their child’s hospitalization
  • Other important priorities that depend on your generosity.


Your donation is vital to the Hospital's success as a world leader in pediatric healthcare. When you make a donation to the Healthy Kids Fund to support the Hospital’s most urgent needs, you help transform care for countless patients and their families.
