Built in 1969, the Centre d’accueil Champlain is dedicated to serving the needs of our francophone senior population. Located in Vanier, the home was completely renovated in 1998 and expanded to include an additional five storeys and all the while being careful to retain the warm home-like atmosphere for our residents and their families.

Centre d'accueil Champlain offers a French language living environment. Programs and activities are offered in French. All correspondence, assessments, meetings with families, committees and council meetings are conducted in French. Employees are French-speaking, allowing residents to enjoy their daily living in a francophone environment. Families may access information in English by contacting the administration office.

Special Features

Beautifully landscaped gardens with walking paths, swings and benches, and easy access to the Richelieu Park are just some of the many features that compliment the Home.

The Centre d’accueil Champlain accommodates 160 residents, on four units with 40 beds in each unit. Each room is furnished with a bed, a night table, a chair, and built-in closet space with drawers. Each room also has a window with a built-in alcove to accommodate plants, books, photographs, and is equipped with individual thermostats.

Delicious home cooked meals are served in each unit’s dining room overlooking the Park. There is a kitchenette adjacent to the dining room where residents can obtain in between meal snacks.

The Second floor is reserved for residents with dementia. It has been designed and decorated to enhance the quality of life of the residents and has direct access to a secured garden. Residents and their families can enjoy many activities in this beautiful setting.

On the top floor of the original building, you will find a large balcony covered with an awning and furnished with patio furniture and other amenities including a library, a poolroom and sitting areas.

The main floor renders well the warm atmosphere of the Home with its open reception area, large living room with fireplace, Faith Centre (chapel), beauty salon, main dining room and the Café Georgette.

Communal areas, multi-purpose activity rooms and family rooms allow for family gatherings and residents activities.
