On Assisted Dying

The World’s First International Lip Syncing Competition Hosted by People With Disabilities!

We did it! You have helped lead the way in fueling the greatest amount of online engagement we have ever seen in L'Arche! In total, our lip syncs have been watched over 90,000 times, raised over $102,000, and inspired an immense amount of joy and generosity. THANK YOU for your continued passion, enthusiasm, encouragement and creativity to keep shouting from the rooftops what we know: that the world is better because of people with disabilities.
“Battle of the Fans” is an online video Lip Sync competition and fundraiser created by L’Arche Canada that will happen between November 24 and December 22, 2020 to coincide with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities and Giving Tuesday.
L’Arche communities battle each other in a bracketed, single elimination tournament. Total funds will be divided among all participating communities with 50% going to communities (divided equally), 25% to L’Arche Canada, and 25% to solidarity to support L’Arche communities in the global south.
We are excited to invite you to join us in this musical competition with a donation to the mission of L'Arche, and sharing the videos online with your network. Every dollar you donate counts towards reaching our goal of becoming the finalist for this friendly competition, and every “Share” and “Like” on Facebook gets even more points! We appreciate your contribution. The L'Arche community with the most gifts and shares on Facebook, will become the final winner.
Thank you for helping us get there! You Rock!












When communities welcome the contributions of persons with intellectual and other disabilities, they thrive, and we all benefit from a more vibrant, creative, and compassionate society.
L’Arche was founded to be a safe place where people who are vulnerable and marginalized discover respect and valued belonging. The name L’Arche, after Noah’s ark, was chosen to represent this promise. The current L’Arche logo shows each person with a place in the boat of equal dignity and value. These values are fundamental to the vision and mission of L’Arche for all who participate in our life and for the world.
Our commitment to respect all individuals, to prevent abuse, discrimination and harassment, and to provide support and intervention when required.

On February 8, members of L’Arche attended an “in person” session of the accessibility consultation, as several L’Arche folk from other communities had done in their cities.
