Agape is a non-profit, charitable organization. Our mission is to enhance the vitality of the underprivileged English-speaking and multicultural people of Laval by offering a wide variety of services that promote and improve mental and physical well-being.
By definition, the word “Agape” (ancient Greek) is translated into English, meaning love: the highest form of love, charity; the love of God for man and of man for God. “Agape” embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends and that serves regardless of circumstances.
Our vision is that all people of Laval have access to the indispensable things in life such as food, shelter and clothing and that all people have equal opportunities with regards to education and healthcare
