Meet the actors of the Movement

Once again, the MIFO family is coming together to build a strong and proud community. All together - children, students, participants, members, volunteers, employees, colleagues, neighbors and partners - we form this great family.

With this important project, we will have the space to welcome and gather people who want to flourish in French. In the new MIFO, Francophones and Francophiles of all ages will have space to create memories, meet, exchange and grow.

Desjardins - $250,000

This is Normand Leroux, Executive Director of the Caisse populaire Trillium. He reveals that Desjardins and MIFO share many values: family, community involvement, solidarity. We know that by working together, we will be able to offer our growing community bold spaces that meet its needs.

Thank you to Desjardins for its donation.

Fasken - $50,000

Sébastien Lorquet, partner at Fasken and the campaign's chair, shares his attachment to the MIFO: "It has been a big part of my life. I grew up with it and it helped me forge my Francophone identity. I have so many memories accumulated over the years, especially within the walls of our Cultural Centre. It is now time to build a 'New MIFO' in our image: innovative, dynamic, creative, ecological, accessible, multigenerational, multicultural, and last but not least, 'Franco-proud'."

Thank you to Fasken for its donation.

Marcil Lavallée - $50,000

Valérie Marcil, Marc Brazeau and Luc Labbé, partners at Marcil Lavallée, all agree: MIFO is an important institution for the community and makes Franco-Ontarian culture vibrate. They commit themselves to make our Francophonie strong and live in a unique place like the new MIFO.

Thank you Marcil Lavallée for its donation.

Sicotte Guilbault - $50,000

For Sicotte Guilbault, employer of Francophones and Francophiles in Orléans, the MIFO is an important gathering place. Michel Sicotte (founding partner) and his team recognize that the construction of our new centre will allow the community to thrive and will provide it with an essential space for its growth.

Thank you to Sicotte Guilbault for its donation.

Confidentiality Options
Official Tax Receipt

All donations of $25 and over will receive a receipt for tax deductions. Charity Number: 129956264 RR001.


I understand that the MIFO project will only move forward on the full confirmation of public funding. In the event the project does not go ahead due to lack of public funding, we understand that MIFO will contact us to offer other MIFO initiatives to which our donation may be redirected. If we wish to obtain a full refund, our choice will be respected. I also understand that in the latter case, if a receipt for tax purposes has already been issued, the MIFO will be required to report the refund to the Canada Revenue Agency and that the consultation of a professional in that field is recommended.
