The traditional Guignolée of la Société de Saint-Vincent de Paul de Montréal takes place on the third Sunday of November. You also have the opportunity to get involved by making a difference through cash donations, non-perishable food items, and even making online contributions!

The traditional Guignolée is an essential event for the proper functioning our activities. Last year, it allowed us to raise $523,653 in donations.

First guignolée organized in Quebec

Every November, SSVP volunteers get to work on one of our most important solidarity events of the year.

The Guignolée was Québec’s first door-to-door charity fundraiser, initiated in 1861 by the SSVP throughout the province’s small town communities to gather food for the needy.

The collection was – and still is – carried out in a festive manner, with carollers tagging along for the cause.

Many decades later, this annual tradition continues, thanks to the unrelenting actions of our vast solidarity network.
