About

LaSalle Multicultural Resource Center was founded in 2004 due to the paucity and lack of accessibility to culturally safe psychosocial, health promotion and prevention services for the Anglo community of LaSalle/Montréal.

Governance

LMRC mobilizes resources to provide appropriate care and access to services especially scarce English services to help individuals meet their fullest potential and optimum well being. Through the compassionate culturally competent work of professionals, LMRC provides health promotion, prevention, early intervention programs, counselling/therapy, education, workshops and training to better the lives of children, adults, seniors and families impacted by social issues. 

History

LaSalle Multicultural Resource Center (LMRC) is a non-profit charitable organization founded in 2004 and driven by community grass-root issues. With the support of many volunteers our organization is driven by volunteerism and continues to help many individuals, seniors, children, youths, couples and families. 

Since 2013 programs, services and administration operations occurs in different location due to limited space; LMRC future objective is to amalgamate these operations under one location.

The growing mental health challenges instigated the expansion of the organization’s vision to enhance community wellness through the provision of a diversity of culturally sensitive therapy, counselling, prevention and educational training programs. To this end LMRC will continually increase it’s networking capacity and partnership with a variety of community associations both private and public, collages and universities. 

LMRC ensures that everyone who knocks on the door for help will never be turned away thus service is accessible and free to everyone who needs it.

 

“Don’t feel stressed or burden with life’s daily issues, remember its during what seems to be the bleakest moment that we need to focus on seeing the light.”

 

All our therapists and counsellors, trainers and educators are licensed with their respective professional orders in Québec.
