The City of Laval’s executive-committee has sent a recommendation to city council to vote in favour of granting a $1 million subsidy to the Cité de la Santé Foundation, which raises money for the hospital on René-Laennec Blvd., payable in installments of $200,000 annually over the next five years.
According to a statement issued on April 23 by Mayor Marc Demers’ office and the city administration, the money will be used by the Cité de la Santé Foundation to help fulfill its mandate, which consists mostly of maintaining and improving services at the hospital as well as within the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de Laval.
“The health of our citizens is one of our big priorities,” said Demers. “We are delighted to participate in this collective effort by supporting the CISSS de Laval and all health professionals. In fact, we are very grateful to them for their commitment and we wish to acknowledge their courage.”
