Foundation date: 1969

The beauty and diversity of Canada shine through in L’Arche Canada’s 28 communities and two projects. Our communities, spread from east to west coast, are integrated into small and large urban centres. While a few communities are bilingual, most are either English or French speaking.

L’Arche Canada is recognized as taking a leading role in the movement for belonging and inclusion and is collaborating with a broad range of partners. We believe communities that embrace diverse identities and offer a variety of opportunities are our best hope for building a more just and human society where each person can contribute their gifts.

In L’Arche I have friends and I feel I belong, and I can bring my gift of welcome at the 'Inclusion Café' where I work as a greeter.
