Welcome to L'Arche Lethbridge

Creating a world where everyone belongs

Did you know L'Arche Canada has an Emergency Fund for L'Arche Ukraine?

People living with intellectual disabilities often suffer more in disasters and are often forgotten by efforts to help. The L’Arche emergency fund exists to support L’Arche communities to help ensure some of the world’s most vulnerable citizens are safe.


L’Arche Lethbridge (Alberta, Canada) provides an extraordinary opportunity for men and women from around the world with and without developmental disabilities to share, live, work, and learn together. Many local people participate in the life of our community as committed friends and respite workers. Sharing life with individuals with developmental disabilities at L’Arche is a counter-cultural life-style choice. It is a choice to share in the incredible gifts of individuals with developmental disabilities. L’Arche is a dynamic example of how people of very different abilities, cultures and religions can learn to live in peace. Together we discover depths of joy, freedom, and love, and the incredible beauty of each person regardless of intellectual capacity. If you think L'Arche is for you, and you would like to become part of our community please look at the drop down menu under BECOME INVOLVED to see the various ways you can participate.
