About us


Dianova, in a few words

Our Vision

Our society must cope with many social challenges, such as poverty, a lack of education, violence and addictions. Dianova's purpose is based on the conviction that, with appropriate support, each person will be able to find within him/herself the resources necessary to achieve success in her/his personal development and social integration.

Our Mission

The Mission of Dianova consists of developing initiatives and programs with the objective of promoting personal self-reliance and social progress

Our Commitment 

Dianova is a non-profit organization that has been working with vulnerable people since 1989. Its programs are designed to help people regain their autonomy.

Dianova provides services to adult men and women with drug, alcohol and drug problems, those experiencing chronic or episodic homelessness and since 2016 is active with young people and young adults with autism spectrum disorder.
The activities are aimed primarily at residents of the Montreal Metropolitan Community usually called Greater Montreal.

The Terrebonne Addiction Treatment Center is certified by the Centre iIntégré de Santé et Services Sociaux de Lanaudière. It has been certified since 2002.

In order to meet the needs of those people, Dianova provides additional services to homeless people or at-risk of homelessness through housing with community support and it is now developing a Quebec Bill of Rights to ensure specific development in this prospect. 

Dianova Quebec is incorporated since January 11 2008, under the Law on Quebec Companies, Part III (L.R.Q., chap. C-38, art. 218).

Dianova’s objective is the autonomy of the individual.
