Our story

Our organization was born out of an urgent need for respite, caregiving and emergency support for families living with a child or children with an intellectual disability or PDD.

The situation inspired us, and continues to motivate us, to act in order to improve the daily lives of families. Here you will find an overview of Répit le Zéphyr and all those who have been involved in one way or another in the success of Répit le Zéphyr since its foundation in 2001. Please see our annual reports for more information.

Mission

  • Communication

Répit le Zephyr takes the reins of Operation Red Nose

Répit le Zéphyr took over the reins of Operation Red Nose Salaberry-de-Valleyfield in November 2017.

The organization coordinates the Operation Red Nose Campaign for the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield region. In addition to preventing impaired driving during the holiday season, Répit le Zéphyr is able to collect donations in order to offer more respite services to families.

In the spring of 2020, Répit le Zéphyr was accredited by the Operation Red Nose National Office to take the reins for the Vaudreuil-Dorion region as well.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Operation Red Nose will not be offering its safe ride home service during the 2020 holiday season.

Despite this exceptional situation, Répit le Zéphyr is participating in an awareness campaign promoting safe driving habits during the 2020 holiday season.

We know we can continue to count on your generosity to allow us to offer more respite services to families.
