L'Arche Winnipeg began in 1973 and is today a community comprised of 6 houses and 2 apartments where 27 members with a developmental disability have found a caring home living with approximately 25 assistants.
We are people, young and old, married and single, from varying cultural and religious backgrounds, who choose to live faithful and life-giving relationships with those who have a developmental disability, affirming their place and importance in our society.
Winnipeg is the geographical center of Canada and is situated just 95 kilometers north of the United States border. With its' 650,000 citizens, Winnipeg is home to more than half of Manitoba's population, and is one of Canada's most ethnically diverse cities.
