The RANQ's mission is to improve the quality of life of caregivers in Quebec. It brings together local and regional organizations that have also adopted this mission. The RANQ is the autonomous movement of all caregivers in Quebec, regardless of the age of the person to whom they come to help and their condition.


The objectives of the RANQ:

  • Raise public and government awareness of the realities and needs of caregivers in Quebec.
  • Promote the interests of caregivers in Quebec.
  • Foster communication among member groups and provide support.

In Quebec, local associations of caregivers began to organize in the early 1990s. Among these pioneering groups, we can cite the group of Lotbinière (Chaudière-Appalaches) founded in 1989 followed by the group of St-Hubert (Montérégie ) in 1990. In the Montreal area, the Montreal Association of Caregivers (RAANM) was founded in 1992. This Montreal association has worked hard and reflected on the issue of recognition of the rights of caregivers. They are the ones who produced a very important document on this subject: "The manifest of caregivers" , Montreal, February 2003.

As for the Regroupement des carants naturelles du Québec (RANQ), it obtained its letters patent on May 9, 2000. The founding members came from the Mauricie, Montréal and Granby groupings. Today, the Regroupement has more than 80 member groups, present in most regions of Quebec. Each of these associations brings together dozens, even hundreds of helpers.


Open Monday to Thursday from 9h to 17h
