Our Mission

Since 1929 St. Michael’s Mission has been offering crucial services to some of our most disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens. Our motto, “More Than Just a Bowl of Soup” speaks to the welcome that greets everyone who walks through our red door and goes beyond a hot meal to include valuable support, guidance and community. Our clients include men and women who are experiencing food insecurity, homelessness, isolation, mental illness, addictions and poverty.

We are located in the heart of downtown Montreal at 1105 Stanley Street, Montréal H3B 2S6.
