The Lépine Family proudly aids the Franciscan Missionaries in their exemplary work toward developing the Inuit communities within Nunavut. Upholding the strong belief in helping people who want a better future for themselves and their community Lépine sent their very own Pascale Lépine to work up north in the Hamlet of Chesterfield Inlet.


The initial connection with Lépine’s philanthropic efforts and Chesterfield Inlet was established when Lépine Apartments bought the former convent of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. This area of land was purchased to build upon it the illustrious Les Terrasses Francesca.


Taking ownership of the property compelled Francis Lépine to direct support toward the nun’s charitable efforts. So, in 2019 Lépine collaborated with the Franciscan Missionaries and set out to help those in need. Using the Diocese of Churchill-Hudson Bay, Lépine was able to establish where their efforts would yield crucial success for the developing Nunavut community.
