Agence Ometz is a social service delivery agency specializing in employment, immigration and family services. It promotes the full development of each and ensures the growth and dynamism of the Jewish community of Montreal.


Based on more than 150 years of excellent community service, Ometz was created in April 2008. It is the result of the merger of Jewish Employment Montreal (JEM), Jewish Family Services (JFS) and Jewish Immigrant Assistance Services (JIAS). Ometz Agency offers a range of integrated services for all stages of life. We are committed to strengthening those who are going through difficult times in their lives.

In 1863, when Montreal had just under 1,000 Jews, a group of community leaders gathered at a St. James Street store and created the Young Men's Hebrew Benevolent Society. They were far from suspecting that they were basing what would later become, Jewish Family Services (JFS).

The growing wave of immigrants to Canada, in part due to the many newcomers who were fleeing their country and at risk of being deported upon their arrival, justified the creation of the Jewish Immigrant Assisted Services (JIAS) in 1922. Over the years, JIAS has helped hundreds of thousands of Jewish immigrants apply for immigration and settle in Canada.

In 1945, Jewish Employment Montreal (YWAM) was founded to meet the needs of Canadian war veterans and people arriving from Europe in search of work. Through the variety of services offered to jobseekers and employers, YWAM has become a Montreal leader in employment and job placement.

Currently, more than 13,000 people a year are coming to Ometz to improve their quality of life. The Agency offers a range of services for the whole family, whether it is difficulties experienced as a result of family breakdown or mental illness, financial questions, finding a job or setting up in Montreal .
