Commitment beyond real estate developmentHow we’re involved in the community
Making / a difference in the community
We pride ourselves on contributing to health, education and youth organizations as well as those devoted to helping people in need. Among the organizations that IMMEX supports are: Moisson Estrie, Maison Aube-lumière, CHUS Foundation, Rock-Guertin Foundation, Coalition sherbrookoise pour le travail de rue, Canadian Cancer Society, Santé Globale Foundation, Naissance Renaissance, Quebec Cancer Foundation, Fond du sport et du loisir sherbrookois, Eastern Township Alzheimer Society... Thousands of dollars in donations are given to organizations and causes that promote moral or financial support for the community.
IMMEX helps those in need by supporting Moisson Estrie. This organization’s goal is to contribute to the well-being of people who are in need. Moisson Estrie offers food to the needy either directly or through intermediary organizations. Moisson Estrie believes that food aid is not an end to itself, but rather an excellent way to intervene with individuals and contribute to the fight against social exclusion.

IMMEX is proud to sponsor the Récits de montagne – a fundraising event for outdoor enthusiasts. All profits go to the Fondation Santé globale. This program, which was introduced to Quebec’s primary and secondary public schools in 1998, promotes global health and wellness. The program provides member schools with a structure and a pedagogical approach that teaches students about the importance of leading an active healthy lifestyle and participating in outdoor activities.
The Canadian Cancer Society
IMMEX is a proud participant of the Gala des Grands Chefs, a fundraising event organized by the Canadian Cancer Society (CSC).
