Welcome center

for refugee claimants


Le Pont is a housing and services center for refugee claimants who recently arrived in Quebec.

We want to offer vulnerable people (women, single-parent women, families) temporary housing that is safe, family-friendly, rich in services and that encourages the establishment and integration of refugee claimants in Quebec and Canada.

We offer personalized care for each family, and guide them towards the relevant community and government organizations. We make sure that our beneficiaries have access to the adequate administrative  and health services ; have asked for their work permit, found an apartment, enrolled their children in school... that they are generally ready to settle in Quebec.


Here at Le Pont, we do our best to establish a quality of life based on security, community spirit, tolerance and sharing.. all of that with an "at home" feeling! When the families leave our residence, we make sure they have a decent apartment and follow-up on their situation.
