“What attracted me to Hôpital Montfort was its sense of community and the Francophone environment. From the time I started, I’ve been surrounded by a dynamic, warm and devoted team. I like my job a lot because of the daily action, the collaboration with other professionals, the diversity of our clientele and the quick pace of our interventions! I can truly say that I am content and that I’ve finally found where I belong!”
Manon Crevier, Social Worker at Montfort since June 2011
