City of Dorval 







The city of Dorval is exemplary in its support of local non-profit groups providing care and support to residents. For example, in 1997 the city gave up a portion of land to the Société d’habitation du Québec to build “Résidence Jules-Daigle” for low-income seniors. Also, the city supports L’Équipe Enterprise, a company that provides assistance to individuals living with mental health problems, to improve their work skills and self-esteem. In addition, “A Wish” organization served those in the western end of the Island of Montréal and surrounding areas who suffer from arthritis and associated chronic pain. Lastly, “Friends for Mental Health” supports and educates families who have a loved one with mental illness. These organizations and many others supported by local government are recognized as “major contributors” to the Dorval community.
