About Our Chapter

Since 2010, HOPE worldwide Canada in Montreal has been dedicated to helping vulnerable people to acquire the tools and knowledge needed to improve their daily lives in Quebec. Since its founding, HOPE worldwide in Montreal has offered a back-to-school school bag program as well as Christmas or Easter baskets to families in financial difficulty.

Since then, we partnership with Côte d'Ivoire where we helped build a school offering all levels from kindergarten to grade six. Subsequently, a chicken farm project developed in partnership with HOPE worldwide in Haiti helped support the village of HOPE in Croix-des-Bouquets in Haiti for a few years after the 2010 earthquake.

Local collaboration with Accueil Bonneau, Ronald McDonald House and now the Welcome Hall Mission, have enabled our volunteers to serve thousands of homeless people and parents of sick children. Finally, at the end of July 2021, we celebrated the first anniversary of the Pratiquons le français au Québec workshops, which consist in offering free French conversation groups once a week to Quebec immigrants in order to facilitate their integration into our culture.
