Répit-Ressource de l’est de Montréal is a social economy company offering homecare services.
Among the measures submitted to the Quebec government during the march “du pain et des roses” in 1995 was the improvement of working conditions for housekeepers.
Inspired by this march and the 1996 summit on the economy and employment, Répit-Ressource became officially recognized as a social economy enterprise offering domestic help services in 1997.
