In 1988, the organization was created and given the name PROMIS, which stands for: promotion – integration – new society. PROMIS is an initiative by Andrée Menard, a missionary sister of the Immaculate Conception, and by three young immigrants involved in the project to help new immigrants in the difficult process of adapting to their host society.

On January 17, 1989, thanks to the first board of directors made up of five members, the organization was officially founded and received its letters patent. Since then, PROMIS has been gradually developing its services according to the many needs of its immigrant clientele.
