Humania Assurance Cultural Centre
The city of Saint-Hyacinthe approached Humania Assurance about becoming a financial partner on an initiative aimed at grouping together the region's sociocultural organizations under one roof.
Given the social aspect of this project and the importance Humania Assurance places on community development, the company was delighted to accept this partnership proposal, in keeping with its role as a good corporate citizen, and decided to allocate a total of $300,000 towards the initiative.
The cultural centre called Centre culturel Humania Assurance is located in a former convent, the Couvent de la Métairie. The original building, dating back to 1899, was renovated in such a way as to preserve its heritage value and maintain its unique character.
The renovation work was carried out last autumn and the new cultural centre was inaugurated on November 27, 2014.
