Fauna Foundation

The Fauna Foundation is the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Canada. Located just outside Chambly, on the South Shore of Montreal, the Foundation was established in 1997 by Gloria Grow and Dr. Richard Allan on their 150-acre (0.61 km2) farm. Its primary objective, the rescue and care of chimpanzees who have been used in research, began in the wake of the shutdown of LEMSIP.[1]

It is the first sanctuary to accept chimpanzees with HIV.

In 2012, author Andrew Westoll won the Charles Taylor Prize for his non-fiction book The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary, detailing his encounters with the chimpanzees at the foundation.[2]
