Operating in the heart of Limoilou since 1948, Patro Roc-Amadour is a community centre that welcomes thousands of people every year, including children, teenagers, people with a physical or intellectual disability, adults, and seniors.

It encourages personal integral development through recreational activities and the Service d’entraide (support for disadvantaged people). It also offers an educational environment that complements school and home education.
