After more than 20 years of activity, Certex has the largest textile sorting and reuse facility of its type in Quebec and stands out because of its dual mission, the organization’s commitment and its social impact. Our organization is growing day-by-day and our success allows us to continuously employ more than one hundred people who have functional limitations: physical or intellectual handicaps.

When the talk is of community economics in the borough of Longueuil, Certex is regularly mentioned as an organization that is making a difference. The organization’s reach allows it to be a reference.

Among the numerous achievements in 2012, our team is especially proud of having:


  • Donated more than $250,000 to community organizations so that each could follow its specific mission;
  • Pursued the education program we offer our employees to allow them to obtain their Secondary V / High School Graduation equivalency;
  • Thanks to Moisson Rive-Sud, carried out the distribution of food aid valued at more than $231,000;
  • Spread our message on numerous local and regional media.


The results are convincing and a testament to the determination and passion of an experienced team, a committed Board of Directors and loyal partners. For Certex, achieving excellence is not simply a level of performance and profitability, but especially the management of Human Resources, operations, social involvement and a contribution to the community.

We are fortunate to be one of the change players at the heart of the social economy. Significantly contributing to economic effectiveness, social equality and protecting the environment, the three pillars of sustainable development, allows us to target excellence and assure our place in the community. This means we can make a difference for the most vulnerable people and organizations, locally.


Marie-Josée Filteau, Executive Director
