WHO ARE WE…
We all benefit from several social programs in Quebec. Free healthcare and compensations in the event of workplace accidents and illnesses are available to most workers. But the system can be faulty and can present major hurdles to see one’s rights recognised. Too often workplace accident or illness victims are neglected, even rejected by the system. Doctor Benoit Deshaies Foundation, created in 1998, can help them.
The Foundation’s mission is to assist victims of a workplace accident or illness, whether recognised or not by the appointed public compensation bodies (CNESST), that require assistance or services not provided by those bodies and whose income are below the threshold of low income cutoffs.
The type of assistance from the Foundation may include:
- general and specialised clinical care;
- medical expertise;
- professional phycological support and active listening;
- support services provided by volunteers.
The Doctor Benoit Deshaies Foundation is responsive. Our team comprises Board members, Awards Committee members, several volunteers and sponsors.
