Online registration

Registration is done online using the Saint-Lazare Access card (resident card) or by telephone at 450-424-8000, ext. 217.

In case of cancellation

Daily and unexpected challenges that those living with disabilities and their parents are faced with, the Town will accept cancellations the morning of the activities.  At the same time, it is preferable to notify the Town as soon as possible in order to allow children on the waiting list to take part in the activities as replacements for those who cancel. This is greatly appreciated by parents whose children are on the waiting list. Important: If the child living with a disability is no longer able to take part in the activity, please note that siblings may not participate either. The program is intended to promote the integration of children with disabilities and not to provide “child care”.

Reception of instructions

The Thursday before the scheduled period of activity, parents will receive instructions by email for that given Saturday, notably with regards to required clothing, access to parking and drop-off areas for those who need assistance with mobility, health instructions in effect, etc. 


Waiting list

If the maximum number of applications is reached, a waiting list will be created.
