Community Involvement

For over 20 years, Lagois has been deeply committed to charitable causes and community involvement by all members of staff. We are strong supporters of Ronald McDonald House, where Herb Lagois has sat on the Board of Directors since 2015.

Additionally, Lagois supports numerous other children’s charities in the Ottawa area including The Snowsuit Fund, CHEO, local schools and various youth associations.

Here are some of the contributions we’ve made to the community in recent years:
