About L'Arche Canada Foundation:

Founded in 2001, L’Arche Canada Foundation raises money for housing and supporting Canadian adults with intellectual disabilities. In F2017, the foundation's audited financial statements report it distributed $1.5 million to L’Arche Canada and $818,756 to smaller L’Arche community organizations in Canada. However, the foundation's T3010 filing with the CRA reports it granted $2.2 million to L'Arche Canada and $98k to local L'Arche charities. L’Arche is one of only two national organizations providing residential programs and outreach services to Canadians with intellectual disabilities.

L’Arche Canada operates 200 homes, housing 528 adults. Clients arrive at L’Arche homes when their parents die or are too ill to act as a caregiver. Alternatively, some people finishing high school begin adult life and increase their independence through living in the organized homes. L’Arche homes are located in nine provinces, with the newest location in Newfoundland and Laborador. For 271 individuals who are still living at home, L’Arche provides support in finding work and a recreational day program.
