THE HEAFEY GROUP & WORLD VISION:
AN ONGOING COMMITMENT TO A BETTER WORLD
The Heafey Group and its founder Pierre Heafey are aware of the importance of becoming significantly involved in one’s community and opening up to the world for humanitarian purposes. Therefore, the Heafey Group is proud to be actively involved with World Vision, a humanitarian development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
To date, the Heafey Group has donated more than $1 million to World Vision. The funds have, in particular, helped an orphanage in Romania and a micro-financing project in Central America. The Heafey Group’s goal is to provide international communities in need with the tools required to complete projects that promise a better future.

Alliance with centraide outaouais: CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
The Heafey Group and Centraide Outaouais have had a solid relationship for many years. To date, the Heafey Group has donated approximately $600,000 to the organization as a social investment benefiting the Outaouais region. Besides promoting ongoing community development, the donations also aim to reduce poverty and fight social injustices.
The Heafey Group & Centraide Gatineau-Labelle-Hautes-Laurentides: working together to reduce hunger
Still from the perspective of community support, the Heafey Group is engaged in the fight against undernourishment in the Outaouais region through Centraide Gatineau-Labelle. It is in this spirit of social responsibility that it donated $185,000 to the organisation so the most deprived people in the region can meet their nutritional needs and therefore improve their quality of life.
Support to université du Québec en Outaouais:
Investing in the future
Given its employees’ own training, the Heafey Group strongly believes in the need to provide access to quality education and wants to encourage the emerging generations. It therefore donated $100,000 to l’Université du Québec en Outaouais during the “IMAGINEZ L’UQO” campaign as a contribution to scholarships and financial aid programs for students who would not otherwise have had the resources needed to fulfill their academic ambitions.
