Transforming Lives, Transforming Society
The L’Arche Canada Foundation is a not-for-profit charity that raises funds on behalf of L’Arche Canada and is committed to transforming the lives of intellectually disabled people in communities across Canada.


Listing L’Arche as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF is easy. Probate fees are not applied because it does not go through your Estate. You can name your beneficiaries directly on your RRSP/RRIF form, or advising your financial advisor. You can list more than one beneficiary.
