If you live in a municipality of the Montreal Metropolitan Community (including Saint-Jérôme and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu) or the Québec Metropolitan Community (including Laurier-Station, Saint-Basile, Saint-Apollinaire, Neuville, Pont-Rouge and Donnacona), we invite you to contact us after your delivery to validate your eligibility for the Public Mothers' Milk Bank.
