Gold Sponsor




This year, CBV Institute is proud to support Centre Philou. As a true extension of the family, Centre Philou is a living environment specially designed to meet the needs of children with multiple disabilities, while encouraging their full potential, with joy and respect for their condition. Founded in 2005, their services include: respite stays, intensive stimulation programs, summer day Camp and family support. In lieu of speaker’s gifts, it has been CBV Institute’s practice to instead support a charitable organization in order to give back to the community on behalf of the profession.
