Much like the Quebec Breakfast Club, Jean-Paul Fortin believes that every child should have a nutritious start to their day. That's why we've committed to donating $2 to this organization for every Jean-Paul Fortin eco-friendly bag sold in-store. Our donations help to give 18,000 children across Quebec a nutritious meal every morning. These meals help to fuel creative energies, have a positive effect on academic achievements and contribute to a more nourishing school environment.
The Quebec Breakfast Club was founded in 1994 by Daniel Germain and has since amassed an increasing number of private and public partners. By the end of 2013, they had installed kitchen facilities in 297 primary and secondary schools across the province, providing over 2.5 million breakfasts every year.

Jean-Paul Fortin cares deeply about the health of Canadians and has made a commitment to contributing through donations made to the CCSVI Coalition. All donations go directly towards research purposes. We also give all of the profits made from our collection of eco-friendly bags sold in our Les Pieds sur Terre and Clarks franchises.
The CCSVI Coalition is a Canadian group of volunteers focused on researching the causes and treatments of neuro-degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, ALS and Alzheimer’s. Recent studies have given early indications that compromised blood flow to the brain may be a factor in such diseases, but research is needed to make a difference in the lives of the many Canadians who suffer from these conditions. For more information, visit their website at ccsvicoalition.org.
Jean-Paul Fortin is also an active contributor to Two/Ten Canada. We make cash donations towards bursary programs as well as donations in kind that contribute towards helping families in need.
The Two/Ten Foundation of Canada is a registered non-profit charitable foundation created in 1989 and dedicated to assisting members of the Canadian footwear community in need. It is operated by its own members who volunteer their time to promote the merit and value of the Foundation.
