Le Petit Futé and the VBM - out to win the hearts of Montrealers!

We're pleased to announce the creation of a new addition to the Petit Futé series of guidebooks: Étre bénévole à Montréal - a guide to volunteering in Montreal. It's a special project undertaken by the Petit Futé editorial team in collaboration with the Volunteer Bureau of Montreal.


The guide is intended to furnish all the essential information about how to get involved in volunteer work in Montreal - and to encourage readers to do so. It will feature testimonials from volunteers of different age groups and backgrounds serving as concrete examples of today's reality with regard to volunteering in Montreal. Readers interested in finding volunteer work will find representative listings of community organizations as well as of the various volunteer bureaus in the metropolitan area that make the link between potential volunteers and groups that need their services.

Être bénévole à Montréal is:

  • A 128-page bilingual guide scheduled for publication in September 2007
  • A project supported by Isabelle Hudon, President and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, and Philippe Fehmiu, media personality and social activist
  • A guide distributed in several thousand copies in all Montreal bookstores and by the VBM

You can join in the project by becoming a partner!

Community organizations: Do you have a outstanding volunteer or an innovative project that should be mentioned in the guide?

Businesses and professionals : Would you like to support the development of the guide?
