Join us, in person* or online, for the 6th edition of Déjeun’aide!

In support of The Children’s Foundation, Déjeun’aide – Breakfast with Leaders – provides an opportunity for ambitious young professionals to network with business, social and community leaders over an intimate breakfast, once a year. Déjeun’aide is the ONLY student-led charitable breakfast event in Montreal.

This year, for the 6th edition, the Déjeun’aide committee is thrilled to invite you to a unique networking event, in person* or online, on Friday, November 12th.

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.

You can select your participation option – in-person or virtual – and submit your choice of leaders.

Organised by the Young Leaders Circle, Déjeun’aide has established itself as a sought-after event for students and young professionals to interact with, and be mentored by, senior executives and management from many of Montreal’s top firms.

For the third consecutive year, the Déjeun’aide team will raise funds for the Febrile Young Infant Research Program led by Dr. Brett Burstein at The Children’s, which launched in September 2019. The goal is to raise $50,000.

*Please note that this event will be following all public health guidelines. As the in-person portion will be taking place in a hotel, the vaccine passport will in effect for in-person participants.

Since its inception in 2016 Déjeun’aide has raised over $150 000 for the Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery Unit at The Children’s and nearly $70 000 for the Febrile Young Infant Research Program.

Please join us to help shape pediatric care for our young patients!
