TOGETHER. Making each life better.

The Life Changing campaign for Bruyère is a transformative, $30-million fundraising campaign by Bruyère Foundation to re-imagine and reinvent how and where healthcare is delivered across our community and our country.


Life Changing is the largest fundraising campaign in Bruyère’s long history of caring. Its goal is ambitious: to enhance hundreds of thousands of lives by transforming care for a rapidly aging population as well as people of all ages with complex medical conditions.

Brain and Memory Health

Your support is helping to expand care and research for brain and memory health.



In less than 20 years, the number of Canadians living with dementia will double. This increase will put enormous strain on the healthcare system and cost billions of dollars.

Bruyère is already a leader in providing care for people experiencing memory issues through the Bruyère Memory Program.

By further investing in life-changing research, preventive programs, strategic partnerships and world-class expertise, we will help reduce the incidence of dementia within the next 20 years.

  • Brain health centre - $5 million
  • Research chairs - $3 million
  • Memory program - $2 million 

Care of the Elderly

Your support is helping to expand care, education and research for seniors’ health.

For the first time, there are more people over the age of 65 than under the age of 15.
As a leader in geriatrics, Bruyère is in an ideal position to redefine the experience of aging by investing in prevention, treatment and innovation. Bruyère’s leadership in geriatric health is urgently needed to support our healthcare system and allow seniors to remain independent and healthy for as long as possible.

  • Integrated seniors' health centre - $5 million
  • Geriatric Rehabilitation - $3 million 
  • Technology & Equipment - $2 million 


Your support is helping us expand rehabilitation care.



Each year in our region, more than 1,800 people suffer a stroke, resulting in hundreds of patients who require various levels of stroke rehabilitation. As a leader in stroke and geriatric rehabilitation, Bruyère is committed to enhancing rehabilitation services across our region. We will make strategic investments in research and promising technologies, expand capacity with regional partners, and become the regional hub for integrated rehabilitation services.

  • Stroke rehabilitation - $3 million
  • Advancing technology - $4 million
  • Outpatient services - $3 million
