The Coopérative de Soutien à Domicile de Laval is a not-for-profit organization that provides various home care services to the elderly and those struggling with a loss of autonomy. Founded in 1995 at the initiative of the four Laval CLSCs (local community service centers), the Coopérative de Soutien à Domicile de Laval is a consumer cooperative created by and for its members.
As a social economy business, the Cooperative pursues a dual mission, namely:
“To offer all our members quality home care services – services that are at once stable, reliable, safe, and professional.”
“To create good jobs and offer rewarding work to people who share the same social values and who want to put their skills to work for our members.”
These two mission statements, which are at once complementary and indivisible, are commitments of the Cooperative that combine the needs of its members with those of its staff. As a result, they can mutually offer each other a better quality of life, bring about greater autonomy, and create a feeling of usefulness and belonging to our community.
