World bank

Seb has worked at the World Bank for the past nine years. He leads a team of professionals who develop reports and analysis for senior management and the Board of Directors. His professional responsibilities make extended leave difficult. The World Bank is therefore an essential partner, since it allows him to dedicate the time necessary for his training, in addition to accommodating his absence to complete his expeditions.


For more than 25 years, Imédia has actively supported the works of the United Way movement in Quebec. More specifically, since 1995, it has organized the « Déjeuner des média » for the benefit of United Way, a philanthropic event for professionals in communication and marketing.

Imédia offers the experience and support of its graphic design and production services to support la Grande Percée’s expeditions: website, newsletter electronic, social media as well as the organization of events and press relations.

In addition, Mr. Michel Audy, President and Founder of Imédia and recipient of the André Mailhot Centraide Prize, awarded to the volunteer of the year and for his philanthropic contribution, will guide la Grande Percée with regard to communication strategy and marketing.

United Way

Centraide Québec, Chaudière-Appalaches and Bas-Saint-Laurent initiated the partnership with the entire Centraide movement in Quebec*. The organization will also host the blog “Social inequalities and climate change”.

All Centraide organizations in Quebec will publish this blog on their website and will directly manage the fundraising (Clicdon module) promoted during La Grande Percée’s expeditions.

Centraide Québec and Centraide Montreal will eventually collaborate with the Chamber of Commerce of Montreal (North Pole expedition) and Quebec City (South Pole expedition) to present the two post-expedition conferences presented by Sébastien Audy. At the same time, there will be virtual broadcasting of these conferences in the regions. The funds raised for these conferences will be added to those raised online during the expeditions and given to the Centraide organizations in the community chosen by donors.

*Centraide Québec will also act as an ambassador to involve United Way Canada.
