Vaudreuil-Dorion’ Operation Red Nose
Prevention on the road and free of charge designated drivers

In 1984, Jean-Marie De Koninck discovered an original way to offer scholarships to his athlete students at Université Laval and founded Red Nose.

Today, more than 100 Canadian organizations benefit from the money collected during a road safety campaign of this non-profit organization. Each year, 1,5 million dollars are redistributed to the different local organizations devoted to the youth and to amateur sports.

Vaudreuil-Dorion’ Operation Red Nose is proud to be carrying out this mission in its region!

Our Mission

The mission of Operation Red Nose is to encourage responsible behavior (in a non-judgmental manner) with regard to impaired driving by enabling communities to provide a free and confidential chauffeur service to their members, the financial benefits of which are redistributed to local organizations dedicated to youth.

  • Opening of the Vaudreuil-Dorion’s Operation Red Nose’s headquarter

    The headquarter is located in the premises of the Caisse populaire de Dorion. The team is proud of the work achieved and of the mission being carried out by the Vaudreuil-Dorion’ Operation Red Nose. M. Michel Cain, Director, Caisse pop de Dorion, Alain Cloutier and Louise Mongrain, Executives at Caisse de Dorion have chosen Operation Red Nose as cause. Mrs. Robert, in charge of communications contacted ORN Québec. Mr. Jean-Marie De Koninck came to visit and since it was necessary to have a host organization who could help young people, the officers of the Caisse chose L’Actuel for that purpose. The Director General at the time at L’Actuel was Paul Laprise and the Volunteer Service Coordinator was Claudette Coulombe. All these people and several others were involved in the setting up of the Vaudreuil-Dorion’s Operation Red Nose. The headquarter has been located in the premises of the Caisse pop de Dorion until 2004.
