For the past twenty-five years, the Papillon Residence has been working in the community with only one goal: To significantly improve the quality of life of children with disabilities and their family by offering them a stimulating and warm respite service. Over the years, the Residence has steadily progressed to enable a greater number of families to benefit from its support. In the beginning, this respite service was only offered on weekends. Now, it is available throughout the year, seven days a week.
Papillon Residence hosts every day from eight to twelve youngsters and entrusts them to a team of four or five considerate and dedicated counsellors. At Papillon Residence there is a warm and friendly atmosphere. High spirits are part of the everyday schedule, weekdays and weekends.

Papillon Residence is part of the daily lives of more than 200 families in the Greater Montreal area. For hundreds of parents who appeal to our services every year, Papillon Residence is an opportunity to stop and take a breather. For the children and adolescents who stay at the Papillon Residence for a few days, it is an opportunity to get together among friends whom they don’t have the chance to see very often outside of school.
The stays also represent the opportunity to change their routine and to participate in lots of activities, from simple ones to more colourful ones. Strolls through the neighbourhood, arts and crafts, dancing, lively hockey games, and treasure hunts in the company of fantastic characters from the four corners of the earth are but a few of the activities which make the days of the little ones and older children alike, simply unforgettable.
If you wish to register your child at the Papillon Residence, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to answer your questions and provide all the information pertaining to your child’s registration. If you wish, a visit is also possible on appointment.
We hope to have the pleasure of meeting you soon!
