Who we are

Compagnons de Montréal est un groupe communautaire autonome innovant et socioécoresponsable qui développe le pouvoir d’agir des personnes qui vivent avec une différence intellectuelle, dans l’esprit du concept innovant et inclusif de l’adhésion. À Compagnons, les membres de l’équipe ne sont pas des prescripteurs de remèdes, mais des prospecteurs de possibles.

Acteur important du monde communautaire dans le domaine de la déficience intellectuelle, le travail de Compagnons de Montréal a été reconnu plus largement en recevant le prix d’excellence 2018 du MSSS dans la catégorie « Soutien aux personnes et groupes vulnérables », puis en gagnant le prix NOVAE en 2020. Compagnons a aussi été finaliste au prix ESTim de la Chambre de commerce de l’est de Montréal dans la catégorie « Organisme à vocation sociale » en 2019 et 2021.

Who we are

Compagnons de Montréal is a non-profit organization that since 1960 has been providing a living, learning and inclusive environment that is stimulating for adults living with an intellectual disability or autistic disorder, through an approach that focusses on self-determination.

Our Values

Every human being has rights and responsibilities towards others.

Through its operations, Compagnons aims to promote respect in all spheres of activity: self-respect, mutual respect, respect for difference, respect for the work of others and respect for the environment.

Compagnons expects these values to be exercised by all team members, thereby setting a positive example in the community through their actions.

We define solidarity as a sense of responsibility and interdependence within a group. Problems encountered by one or more of its members are of concern to the entire group. Our approach broadly emphasizes that all people are part of the same community, which is an essential value that sustains collective action and encourages social justice. At Compagnons, we consider that it is possible to promote individual well-being while protecting collective well-being.

Innovation is essential to social justice, which constantly calls upon greater boldness and creativity. Compagnons is a learning organization, which means that it constantly pushes the boundaries of knowledge, challenges conventional models and dares to explore and create new areas of opportunity.

We recognize the people we support as full citizens, authors of their own destiny and vectors of change. Our approach of empowerment through participation places value on the individual, which has a positive impact on their self-esteem and self-confidence.

We also recognize the excellence, passion, commitment and dedication of our employees, volunteers and interns who work to achieve our mission. Compagnons expresses its gratitude at every possible opportunity, within its capacity and means.
