THE LITTLE STORY

The Foundation was created in 2002, when four visionary people met. They are Germaine Gibara, a dynamic business woman, and three clown enthusiasts: Melissa Holland, Olivier-Hugues Terreault and Florence Vinit.

ARTISTIC TRAINING

We take the quality of our services very seriously. The artists who work for The Jovia Foundation receive an initial 125-hour training and pursue psychosocial and artistic training throughout their careers

OUR TWO PROGRAMMS

The Jovia Foundation offers the Dr Clown program to children in hospitals or rehabilitation centres, and the La Belle Visite program to the elderly living in long-term care centres.
