History

JAME is moving to 4400 LaSalle Boulevard! A big change in the life of the organization: more spacious, brighter premises, a separate room for the library, an animation room for our drop-in reading project... Moreover, in September, JAME received the wonderful news of finally being recognized as an educational organization by the Ministère de l'éducation et de l'enseignement supérieur! Years of hard work are paying off!
