The mission of Operation Red Nose is to encourage responsible behaviour (in a non-judgemental manner) in all impaired situations, by providing an accessible and confidential chauffeur service provided by and for the community, the financial benefits of which are redistributed to local organizations dedicated to youth, or amateur sports, while carrying out other awareness programs on responsible alcohol consumption and road safety.
The funds raised by the Vaudreuil-Dorion headquarters annual campaigns go to the Centre d’action bénévole L’Actuel. Operation Red Nose Vaudreuil-Dorion celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017. The Vaudreuil-Dorion chapter was started in 1993. Originally located in the premises of the Caisse populaire in Dorion, the chapter occupied the offices of L’Actuel for many years before moving, in 2017, to the Viva média premises.
