9, ch. Bois-Joli
Chelsea, QC J9B 1J9.

On-line donations can be made through a secure connection on the Canada Helps web site. See the right side window for more.

Operating Costs

QUAIL's annual operating budget is $155,000. Because the Board of QUAIL is completely volunteer, administrative operational costs are only 2% of our total budget. The majority (77%) of our costs is for resident care and is covered by financial support from Pavillon du Parc. However, 23% of our annual budget must be made up by our fundraising and donation revenue.


With our goal of life-long support for our residents, we have made investments in GICs, Blue Chip stocks and Investment Savings. We have also started an endowment with the Ottawa Community Foundation. Donations can be made to our Endowment fund.


One of the more delicious initiatives to arise within the community has been the jams, jellies, chutneys and pickles made in support of QUAIL. The kitchen is licensed, inspected and the resulting creations have become staples in homes around the community. Our jams are sold at the Wakefield Market, the Vorlage Craft Fair ( and at numerous community events in the Gatineau Hills. If you haven't tried them, it's time you did; you are in for a treat.

  • The Wakefield Farmer's Market Runs Saturday mornings, May 29 - Thanksgiving. It is located beside the Alpengruss on Riverside Road, Wakefield
  • wakefieldmarket(a)


Another way to support QUAIL is to come out to one of our events. Please see the events page for more details.


Finally you can also volunteer your time. Our fundraising committee would welcome your call and our residents would also welcome your one-on-one attention, reading, walking, etc... See volunteer page for more. Please be advised that we are required to ask for certain checks and clearances.
