At Montfort, every person who walks through our door, whether to receive care, visit a loved one or accomplish their work, enters a safe and person-centred environment where excellence prevails. For us, excellence means providing health care and services using state-of-the-art medical equipment in modern facilities adapted to patients’ needs. It also means conducting cutting-edge research that leads to health care discoveries and improved treatments, supporting the professional development of clinical staff, and training the next generation of health professionals.

Events and fundraising

We cannot overlook the global pandemic that has affected everyone. The Montfort Foundation worked hard to meet the growing needs related to the fight against the spread of COVID-19. We were one of the first organizations to launch a campaign in support of a COVID-19 emergency fund, the results of which were overwhelming and beyond all our expectations. The fund generated $210,000 in cash contributions and more than $250,000 was donated in personal protective equipment and meals for our staff and frontline workers. To all our donors, partners, suppliers, volunteers, administrators and employees, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Even with this great success, the pandemic has put our Foundation in a position where we need to innovate and identify other sources of funds to help support the hospital’s emerging priorities. We have launched an original lottery, "Loto-Mobile"! For only $50, you have one chance in 4,000 to win a 2020 Ford Escape as well as other “mobile” prizes.

Tickets are on sale until Dec. 18, 2020.

Charity golf tournament

Since its inauguration in 1994, this annual signature event has raised more than $2.2 million in support of Montfort. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 tournament was cancelled. The 2021 edition will take place at the GreyHawk Golf Club, date to be determined. 

Orléans Health Hub

The Orléans Health Hub is a unique and innovative model of care that will bring together, under one roof, a range of specialized and community health care services. When the project is completed, Ottawa residents - from newborns to seniors – will be able to benefit from integrated programs that are centred on their needs, close to their homes and offered in both official languages.

Important dates:

Official launch of the fundraising campaign in the fall of 2020

Opening of the OHH in the summer of 2021

How you can help

Give

With the funding it receives from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Montfort can provide quality care during the more than 350,000 patient visits it receives annually. However, it is through the generosity of thousands of donors – those heroes who care about the well-being of others and work behind the scenes to give back to their community – that the hospital can achieve excellence and provide exemplary care and services to the population it serves. Your philanthropy leads to excellence. Excellence saves lives.

Volunteer

At Montfort, more than 250 warm-hearted volunteers are hard at work each day for the sole purpose of enhancing the quality of life of our patients and families. If you or anyone you know has received care at Montfort within the last two years, consider becoming a partner-patient! By sharing your experience, you will help improve the quality of care and services offered at Montfort.
