About L’Arche Comox Valley

L’Arche Comox Valley is a community of people  with and without developmental disabilities  sharing their lives together. In L’Arche  we live, work, pray and learn from one another. We are invited to share fully in community life, to live a life that’s unique and help each other to discover one’s hidden gifts.

L’Arche Comox Valley has a home  Jubilee House, in Courtenay, British Columbia, a supported independent living program, for people living on their own and an Outreach and Creative Art Centre where people come to participate in different activites such as beading, painting, and candle making.

L’Arche an International Federation

L’Arche started in a small rural village in France in 1964, when Canadian Jean Vanier, son of former Governor General Georges Vanier, was invited by Father Thomas Philippe to live with two men, Raphaël and Philippe . 47 years later, l’Arche is an International Federation of 136 communities in 40 countries in  5 continents engaging in diverse cultures and faiths.


“The essence of our communities is this ‘living with.’ We are called,  certainly, to serve with all our ability and to help those who are  weaker to develop, but the foundation of this helping is found in  friendship and the communion of hearts, which allows us all to grow.”
Jean Vanier, L’Arche founder
