Our mission for the last 25 years
As part of the prison chaplaincy continuum, Montreal Community Chaplaincy’s (MCC) mission is to create and support a network of organizations working for the social and community reintegration of people who have a criminal record, as well as to provide support for people impacted by crime, in view of restorative justice.
We are recognized by the Correctional Service of Canada.
Our distinctive approach
We believe that anyone affected by crime has the potential to change. We witness this in the people that we accompany. We foster a restorative approach that promotes a more peaceful, safer life. The beneficiaries of our services are impressed to see that people volunteer their time to fulfill our mission. The beneficiaries are marked by this citizen involvement so much that they, as well as those who have been victims of crime, give back in return.
MCC projects: a day center and two accommodation centers
MCC runs and manages two accommodation centers: the La Maison ACM (2017) and the René Gagnon Residence (2006) for ex-inmates, as well as a day center (René Gagnon) which provides a space for the men in rehabilitation to socialize and grow.
