Sponsorship Plan


The International Forum on Health (FSI) is a non-profit organization created in 2013 to serve as a think tank leading to concrete proposals to improve health systems in Quebec and in the world.

After the strategic Forum organized in 2012 in association with the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, the International Forum on Health held its first international congress from the 22d till 24th of October 2013, in the Palais des Congrès of Montreal. This event was a real success with about 700 international participants of various business sectors, who started numerous partnerships.

In 2014, we invited international speaker to explain their models on four main themes (innovation in health, knowledge management, telehealth, and personalized health), to then develop concrete proposals to increase the performance of the health system and the health of population. This second event took place in the Palais des Congrès of Montreal on October 7th and 8th, and was followed by a citizen forum on mother and child health, organized in partnership with the Institut du Nouveau Monde.
