The mission of the Ultramar Foundation is to provide financial support to children’s charities in the communities we serve, in Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic provinces.
Each year, we organize a grand event called La grande Ruée. All the proceeds from this event are donated to local charities, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Montreal.The Ultramar Foundation donates over $700,000 to children’s charities of Eastern Canada every year. These funds are used to take concrete steps to promote the well-being of thousands of children in our community.
All the proceeds from the air pumps in our Canadian network are also donated to the Ultramar Foundation.
