"We are happy to be pursuing our partnership with the Véro & Louis Foundation, which will be building its first home for young adults living with autism spectrum disorder on Montreal’s south shore, not far from our head office," said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, senior vice-president, Communications, Public Affairs and Compliance at Lowe’s Canada. "This support is on top of our commitment to donate $1.5 million to the Foundation to provide people with autism housing adapted to their needs."
