The McGill University Health Centre Auxiliaries are groups of volunteer men and women who raise money for the health centre, as well as promote its image in the community. Money raised by the Auxiliaries is used for projects such as purchasing medical equipment, sponsoring annual research awards, and supporting various programs that enhance patient care within the hospitals and in the community.

A few of the many recent projects the MUHC auxiliaries have made possible:

The Montreal Children's Hospital Auxiliary

After 76 years of existence, The Auxiliary of the Montreal Children’s Hospital is formally closing at the end of 2015. The Friends of the MUHC, incorporated in 2014, will take over some of the work done by the MCH and other auxiliaries at the new Glen hospital as well as develop their own programs and services. Members of the Montreal Children’s Auxiliary are encouraged to join.

The Holiday card program, previously run by the Auxiliary, has been taken over by the MCH Foundation for 2015.  To continue to support the Children’s and the pediatric mission of the MUHC with your donations, please contact the Montreal Children’s Foundation at 514-934-4846 or visit us online at

The Friends of the Neuro

The Friends are volunteers who circulate a cart with a variety of personal items and reading material for patients and families. Occasionally, McGill University student volunteers also provide social and recreational activities through this group. The Friends of the Neuro also organize numerous fundraising activities throughout the year and money raised, together with the proceeds of the Café Neuro, is used to meet direct patient care needs.
