Inclusion and social equity
Since 2014, Montréal Relève has been working with CISSS de la Montérégie-Centre, l’Institut Nazareth et Louis-Braille (INLB) and la Fondation En Vue de l’INLB to meet a need for professional exploration of adolescents. and young adults living with a visual impairment.
Thanks to the Vision Carrières program, there are approximately 15 teenagers and young adults every year who benefit from one week internships in a sector of interest. Internships are tailor-made for participants who use INLB.
Vision Carrières also allows partner organizations to test their integration strategies and become familiar with a pool of potential labor. Click here for the list of internship partners.
Vision Carrières is made possible thanks to the financial support of la Fondation En Vue de l’INLB.

”I was able to work on a concrete project as if I really had this profession and I loved it! In the end, I would say that I wanted to stay longer because I loved it!” – Jonathan, 2016 participant
”This internship really helped my daughter in her thinking about what she would like to do as a job later and allowed her to earn even more independence.”
