The Bourassa Savaria Foundation

The Bourassa Savaria Foundation (CRA #84814 0570) was created in 2014 to support people facing mobility challenges. It was founded by Marcel Bourassa, Executive Chairman of Savaria Corporation. Mr. Bourassa contributes personally to the Foundation and Savaria Corporation also contributes to the Foundation.

Bourassa Savaria Foundation

There are thousands of Canadians facing the day-to-day challenge of basic mobility due to disease, aging or injury. Enjoying the freedom to travel, work or participate in sport is made more difficult for people in wheelchairs. The Bourassa Savaria Foundation aims to provide financial assistance to in-need Canadians with disabilities related to physical mobility.
