We want all our members and stakeholders to speak up if they see or experience situations that are causing harm.

Please note that when you submit a complaint the link will take you to a form that goes to a third-party to review and send to L’Arche Canada for processing. Complaints that are related to a local L’Arche community will go a Regional Leader to be processed with the community. Complaints that are for L’Arche Canada will go to Director of Human Resources and the National Leader to be processed.
