For over 40 years, L’Arche Ottawa has brought to life the vision of Jean Vanier, where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life in community with a wide circle of family, friends, and neighbours. We provide supports for daily living, employment, and community participation. We help individuals with intellectual disabilities discover their gifts and abilities, and support them to achieve their goals for a meaningful life. L’Arche Ottawa is a community within the community working with others to build a world where everyone belongs.
