Our Harbour By-Laws Revised for 2014

Our Harbour Chair Catherine Gillbert received the 2016 Lambertois Merit Award from the city of Saint-Lambert, Quebec for her work supporting the cause of mental health in the Montérégie.



We’re so proud! This week Our Harbour resident Billy Douthwright recently marked an important milestone: he earned his high school diploma from ACCESS in Saint Lambert. Those close to him know how hard he worked to make this possible. This was duly reflected in the Perseverance prize he received at the graduation ceremony.

The loyal Our Harbour supporters present also applauded when he collected the History prize. Billy plans to attend CEGEP this fall and aspires to take his education even further. With Access’ classes and life lessons behind him, he should go far. Congratulations, Billy, and bon voyage.

Our Harbour shares mental health award:

As part of the L’Abri en ville network, Our Harbour was a joint recipient of an Award from the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC). The award was presented on October 16, 2012 at the Commissions annual dinner in Ottawa. Reflecting the continued successful expansion of the L’Abri model of resident support beyond the island of Montreal, the award recognized initiatives that strengthen the capacity of community-based mental health services to meet identified community needs, foster recovery and well-being for clients, and provide for their support networks.
