The Butters Foundation was founded as a private foundation in 1976 to honor the work of Mrs. Lily Butters and to promote her legacy in the field of intellectual disability in Quebec and in Canada. It was founded by friends and family of this pioneer in the field who was awarded the Order of Canada in 1972.
It is also committed to helping parents meet the challenges of raising a disabled or autistic child in today’s hectic social environment. Therefore, respite is a primary target of the foundation’s philanthropic activity.
