Who we are

Opération Enfant Soleil is a non-profit organization that raises funds to develop high-quality paediatrics and to contribute to social health projects for all the children in Quebec.

Jeunes Espoirs Competition

Since 1993, the competition has given young talents the opportunity to sing for an audience during the night of the Opération Enfant Soleil Telethon. This year’s telethon was held on June 4 and 5 at ExpoCité’s Pavillon de la jeunesse in Québec and broadcast live on TVA.
