Family is the backbone of our community

Family is the backbone of our community and at ARC we offer a number of programs for children and families, as well as a youth program promoting careers in the health sector in high school and post-secondary programs.

Our programs for families include:

  • Parent-child Mother Goose for children 0-3 years old. This program uses verbal stimulation through songs, nursery rhymes and oral storytelling. Ten-week sessions, each session is 75 minutes long
  • Sajou and Salie is another parent-child program for children ages 3-6. With this program children and parents are invited to participate in various activities. These activities give children the opportunity to develop their vocabulary, alphabetical knowledge and awaken their interest in reading.

Teens and young adults

  • Through the McGill Retention Program, we promote careers in the health sector to students in high school and post-secondary programs.
  • Also through McGill, we are now offering the Targeted Bursary Program. These bursaries provide financial support to students residing in the Greater Montreal Region with English and French language skills pursuing full-time studies in the area of health and social services in a government recognized educational institution.
  • Our workshops facilitated by a family life educator to help parents manage during the health crisis. We have online workshops for parents, parent/teen workshops offered throughout the year and at the Building Community Together fair.
