As part of the establishment of a scholarship program for university studies, for the benefit of talented students of the Haitian community. More than 130 people, of the Haitian community of the region, as well as friends and invited personalities, paid a fitting tribute to federal deputy Mauril Bélanger (Ottawa-Vanier), during a benefit evening at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO).
