At L’Arche Edmonton , we celebrate our gifts. People with or without disabilities are welcomed with open arms. We view each other as ambassadors for belonging - people who passionately contribute their gifts and experiences for the good of society. This attitude permeates everything we do at our various homes and at Day Program which sometimes hosts Hot Lunch on Fridays to volunteering at Hope Mission. We take pride in being a  diverse and multicultural community, and we  celebrate the unique gifts of each individual who chooses to live and work with us.




We are people with and without intellectual disabilities, sharing life in communities belonging to an International Federation.
Mutual relationships and trust in God are at the heart of our journey together.
We celebrate the unique value of every person and recognise our need of one another.



Make known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities, revealed through mutually transforming relationships.
Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members, whilst being faithful to the core values of our founding story.
Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.



Our mission is to engage in our diverse cultures to work together toward a more human society.  A more human society that welcomes each and every human person; that welcomes the whole human person in all their dimensions including the spiritual; a human society that welcomes unity in diversity, strength in fragility, and freedom in interdependence .

    Live-In Assistants who come to live in a L’Arche community, provide support and share in friendships with Core Members (persons with intellectual disabilities).  Assistants find their time at L’Arche to be filled with meaning, growth and friendship.
