Pierre G. Cartier has a singular conviction that guides everything he does: United, we are strong.

Pierre G.Cartier is committed to collective wellbeing. As Executive Director of Corporation de L’Étincelle, he’s here to help the community.

Pierre G. Cartier has always had community wellbeing at heart, and he serves his community as CEO of Corporation de L’Étincelle, based in Montreal’s Saint-Henri district.

The Corporation de L’Étincelle makes it possible for many families to enjoy a stay at the Centre Plein Air L’Étincelle outdoor activity centre in Lanaudière region. This is a safe environment that promotes healing, enhancement, personal growth, and family strengthening for people from all walks of life, including parents, children, seniors, and people with disabilities. In addition to enjoying accommodations and meals, residents can take part in outdoor, sports, and cultural and recreational activities.

Pierre strongly believes in the benefits of camps in the lives of young people and vulnerable families. That’s why he chose to offer his vast experience in aid of Corporation de L’Étincelle (in addition to taking part in various other agencies that are close to his heart). His far-reaching vision and keen business sense have allowed him to leave his mark on the agency he leads, in particular in terms of making services for disadvantaged and vulnerable clienteles more accessible.

Pierre helped develop the Centre Plein Air L’Étincelle outdoor activity centre by focusing on social exchange and diversity. People from disadvantaged backgrounds rub shoulders with those from wealthier backgrounds; people with physical or intellectual disabilities share the camp with those who don’t.

A singular conviction guides everything that Pierre does: United, we are strong. This certainty is what motivates him to make himself available and keep getting involved. As a result, beneficiaries, employees, suppliers, partners, and others involved in the Quebec camp community all agree: Pierre Cartier’s generosity simply knows no bounds.

Centraide has supported Corporation de L’Étincelle (St-Henri) – Centre Plein Air l’Étincelle since 2012.

Pierre G. Cartier is the proud recipient of the 2017 Solidaires Leadership Award.
