In an effort to support CHU Sainte-Justine University Hospital, former Sudburian Phillippe Bélanger-Leroux and his students have entered the Sing for Sainte-Justine with Céline Dion contest.

CHU Sainte-Justine is the only mother-child university hospital centre in Canada.


Bélanger-Leroux, a guidance counsellor and history teacher, and the group of 12 students from École secondaire Gaétan-Gervais in Oakville, Ont. were inspired to enter the contest to honour a fellow student.

“We decided to do this project because one of our students was treated for diabetes at that hospital when he was younger,” said Bélanger-Leroux.

Because the group is one of the only choirs from Ontario, they require as much support as possible.

“We’re a French choir from Ontario, so obviously the choirs from Quebec have a lot more visibility and a lot of people in Ontario don’t know about this contest,” said Bélanger-Leroux.

Voting is open to the public until April 30 and a $5 donation is required for every vote, with all proceeds going to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation.
