THE FOUNDATION

THE REA FOUNDATION

REA. Doesn’t ring a bell? We a are a dedicated specialized hospital foundation for the Institut universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (which could be translated as Physical Rehabilitation University Institute of Montreal). This University Institute groups the Institut de réadaptation Gingras-Lindsay-de-Montréal, the Centre de réadaptation Lucie-Bruneau and The Institut Raymond-Dewar, both (ultra)specialized in physical rehabilitation. Together, they provide care for people living with a physical disability (sensory, language, hearing or motor).

What role does REA play in all of this? Our daily motivation is to raise awareness and collect donations for the cause and the Institute.

And because you are definitely asking the question. REA is equivalent to the first three letters of the word RÉAdaptation (rehabilitation in French), because we are there from the first moment. Quite simply.

THE CENTRE DE READAPTATION
LUCIE-BRUNEAU

The Centre de réadaptation Lucie-Bruneau (CRLB) corporation offers people with motor or neurological impairment personalized, specialized or highly specialized services in adaptation-rehabilitation; social, residential and occupational integration services; integration support services; help and support services for family and friends; and alternative residential resources, all designed to foster social participation and maximize quality of life.

INSTITUT DE READAPTATION
GINGRAS-LINDSAY-DE-MONTREAL

Institut de réadaptation Gingras-Lindsay-de-Montréal (IRGLM) is a hospital specializing in rehabilitation for people with physical disabilities. It is the result of a 2008 amalgamation of Institut de réadaptation de Montréal and Lindsay Rehabilitation Hospital. The aim of IRGLM is to help people regain their autonomy with a view to returning home.

THE INSTITUT RAYMOND-DEWAR

Institut Raymond-Dewar (IRD) is a pluriregional rehabilitation centre that is highly specialized in deafness and communication. IRD is affiliated with Université de Montréal and associated with Université du Québec à Montréal and Cégep du Vieux-Montréal.

INSTITUT UNIVERSITAIRE SUR LA RÉADAPTATION EN DÉFICIENCE PHYSIQUE DE MONTRÉAL

Professionals at Institut de réadaptation Gingras-Lindsay-de-Montréal (IRGLM), Centre de réadaptation Lucie-Bruneau (CRLB) and Institut Raymond-Dewar (IRD) oversee the rehabilitation and social integration of thousands of people.

In April 2015, the three physical rehabilitation centres were integrated into the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal. Each one is a leader in its field, and their expertise is recognized beyond our borders. These three establishments have come together to form The Institut universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (IURDPM).

Affiliated with Université de Montréal, McGill University and Université du Québec à Montréal, CRDP-IU receives many students each year, and a variety of research projects are conducted in order to promote increased knowledge and treatment advancement.
