Montfort Renaissance is a non profit community organisation. It was founded in July 2002 by two organizations that were behind its creation and its name, Montfort Hospital and Horizons Renaissance.
In 2012, to better meet the mental health, substance abuse and housing needs of Francophones residing in Eastern Ontario, Montfort Renaissance and Horizons Renaissance (founded in 1984) merged to improve the continuum of health services within their area of interest. Proud of its past, the new board decided to keep the name Montfort Renaissance.
Today Montfort Renaissance has more than 90 employees and helps more than 130 people with housing either in the community, in its own apartments, at la Maison Gilles Chagnon, or at Résidence Montfort Renaissance. The organization also offers withdrawal services to over 1,000 clients per year, through the Ottawa Withdrawal Services Centre, as well as rehabilitation and clinical services in mental health to more than 300 people per year.
