Our History

The organization was created in 1988 under the name PROMIS, which in French stands for: PROMotion – Intégration – Société nouvelle (New society). Missionary sister of the Immaculate Conception Andrée Ménard initiated the project with three young immigrants. They worked together to help newcomers face the challenging process of adapting to their host society.

On January 17, 1989, thanks to its five-member board of directors, the organization was officially founded and received its letters patent. Since then, PROMIS has been gradually developing its services based on the needs of immigrants and taking the migration experience into account.
