L’Arche is an international federation of communities founded by Jean Vanier where men and women with intellectual disabilities, and those who choose to share life with them, live and work together. Situated in the small university town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, L’Arche Antigonish has been operating since 1979.


Today, our community is home to 22 people with intellectual disabilities, living in 5 homes and 1 apartment. Our homes, day programs and summer camp offer a variety of learning experiences and foster a spirit of cooperation and a discovery of each other’s uniqueness.  L’Arche Antigonish is closely connected with St. Francis Xavier University. Each year, over 60 university student volunteers participate in various programs.
