Mission

The Fondation Bouldering Montréal (FBM) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the growth of climbing, youth integration and support for athletes.

The FBM cultivates a critical awareness on the importance of sport, healthy living and health through education and youth development. It promotes and consolidates the role that climbing can take in that regard, always with a social approach of integration and enhancement of human relationships.

The FBM also supports the Quebec and Canadian competition circuit and intends to support the federations involved.

Finally, it aims to acknowledge the efforts and excellence among athletes. In this sense, since its launch, the FBM is proud to have awarded several grants to help athletes achieve their goals in international competitions.

    « Un gros remerciement à la Fondation Bouldering Montréal de ce soutien! C'est très intéressant de pouvoir partager le point de vue de grimpeurs sur leurs expériences en escalade, et comment tous et toutes peuvent en bénéficier. Surtout en format baladodiffusion, c'est quelque chose de différent, qui, je l'espère, saura interpeller les gens ! Merci encore ! »

    « Wow! C’est le premier mot qui m’est venu à l’esprit quand j’ai appris la nouvelle! La prochaine fois que j’irais grimper à Val-David ou à Fontainebleau, j’allais pouvoir laisser mon tapis de sol bleu au camping et cesser de craindre pour mes chevilles et mon dos chaque fois que j’allais m’élever à plus de 30 cm du sol. MERCI à la Fondation Bouldering de Montréal pour ce magnifique cadeau! Moi qui avais hâte à la neige pour aller skier, j’ai maintenant encore plus hâte à l’été pour aller baptiser ce magnifique crash pad dans les boues laurentiennes! »
