Anticipated calendar for periods of activity, and registration deadlines
First period of activites Saturday, March 30, 2019
Starting at 9 :00 a.m. on Saturday, March 30, 2019, the first of 10 periods of activities adapted to a group of un to 15 child aged 6 to 17 living with disabilities and residents of Vaudreuil-Soulanges will take place. The young people will be able to participate, with their brothers and sisters aged 6 to 17, in the enchanting setting of Parc nature Les Forestiers-de-Saint-Lazare à Saint-Lazare (2800 Chemin Lotbinière)—free of charge!
Activities are overseen and supervised by specialized educators, support workers and animators for the participants’ siblings.The proposed activities—most notably adapted workshops, animations, trekking, outdoor games, a mini-farm, sledding and swimming—take into account both the different disabilities of participants and weather conditions.
Admission criteria for children with disabilities
To be eligible, the child must meet the legal definition of a person living with a disability, as set out in the Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration (CQLR, c.E-Z20.1). Disabilities must be proven through a written evaluation prepared by a health professional.
In the event of cancellation or indisposition of a child with a disability
As we are aware of the 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.
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 aims to foster the integration of children living with a disability and should not be seen as “daycare services” for their siblings.
Si un enfant en situation de handicap n’est pas disposé à participer à l’activité, la fratrie ne pourra pas y participer non plus. Le programme vise à favoriser l’intégration des enfants en situation de handicap et ne doit pas être utilisé comme « service de garde » pour la fratrie.

An initiative inspired by community
The new program created to meet the needs of a growing clientele, is inspired by the Vaudreuil Prenatal and Young Family Centre X Mom Project and is the result of consultations held with members representing individuals living with disabilities through the Municipal family policy and senior-friendly municipality approach follow-up committee.
The Town is privileged to be able to count on the expertise and participation of Parrainage Civique de Vaudreuil-Soulanges and Zone Loisir Montérégie in this project. Recall that Les Incroyables Chromosomes program benefits from a generous contribution of close to $30,000 from the Fonds de développement des communautés de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, as well as a contribution of $3,000 from Zone Loisir Montérégie
