“To see how all these people can live together, in the joys of everyday life, but through the difficulties too. This is what I find very beautiful at L’Arche.”

Creating a world where everyone belongs

Across Canada and around the world, L’Arche creates communities of friendship and belonging. In L’Arche, people with and without intellectual disabilities live, work, learn, and grow together. L’Arche demonstrates that when persons with intellectual disabilities take their place at the table, they contribute to a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world for all.


With people around the world, the family of L’Arche mourned the death and celebrated the life of our founder, Jean Vanier. We are called to stay on his path.
It was a man of few words who taught me to see all stories, even the ones that cannot be spoken.
