25 years, 1.5 million people

Québec City, November 8, 2022 — In 2022-23, OSEntreprendre is celebrating its 25th year by highlighting the extraordinary collective mobilization that supports the evolution of the entrepreneurial spirit in Québec. With Paul-Arthur Fortin as ambassador for the celebrations, five initiatives will be carried out throughout the year!

“We are pursuing what others before us dreamed of, thought through and initiated. OSEntreprendre is proud to inherit and pass on this legacy so that, along with its partners and allies, it can continue to mobilize, showcase and inspire more people to take action,” said Manon Théberge, President and Director General of OSEntreprendre.

For over 40 years, Paul-Arthur Fortin and Hélène C. Fortin have been actively blazing the trail for the development of the spirit of entrepreneurship and of entrepreneurship itself in Québec, and they have done so with sensitivity, creativity and dedication.

In 2020, they sought to donate a collection of paintings by Québec artists from their personal collection to an organization. “We chose OSEntreprendre because it carries out a mission that is in line with the direction we have taken in our careers, which is to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship in order to help build a proud, innovative, committed and prosperous Québec,” said Paul-Arthur Fortin.


Some initiatives to celebrate the things we do together

Their donation makes it possible to carry out one of the five initiatives deployed until June 2023 within the OSEntreprendre community. To find out more, please visit osentreprendre.quebec.

At the same time, the organization’s main activities are ongoing in all regions of Québec. Don’t miss the Semaine des entrepreneurs à l’école from November 14 to 25 and the opening of registrations for the OSEntreprendre Challenge at the end of November 2022.
