Ms. Sophie Desmarais is a philanthropist known in the musical field for her involvement with the musicians of the Université de Montreal’s Big Band since 2007, as the “Coeur à Coeur” annual concert producer.
She continues her involvement with youth. All forms of bullying are a major problem in Quebec and in all other areas of the country as well. Personally involved with Fondation Jasmin Roy against bullying and “Kids Help Phone”, Ms. Desmarais is presently starting a pilot project with youth in the area of Charlevoix. She will personally support this project, which is dear to her, in order to support bullying victims and bring information to groups of youth about the risks and the disastrous consequences of bullying.
