Word from the President

Dear Partners, Dear Friends,

The primary mission of Certex is to create employment for, and integrate into the workforce, people with functional limitations: physical or intellectual handicaps. This is achieved with the operation of a major environmental initiative: a textile recovery and sorting centre for reuse, the largest of its kind in Quebec.

This mission and our operations face constant challenges and recent years have shown that our employees, managers and partners are committed to sustaining the growth of Certex for years to come.

The CERTEX mission is to intensively support individuals who work daily as full-fledged citizens. Their valuable contribution gives them dignity, peace of mind and pride which should be possible for every member of society.

The coming year again offers us large and appealing challenges of consolidation and growth. I am confident that all the resources in place, both internal and external, will work together to ensure the sustainability of this worthy cause.

I take this opportunity to thank the managers for their assiduous and vigilant contributions. I also thank our outstanding Executive Director and her dynamic team.

We are grateful of course to our partners, public and private, and particularly the Quebec Office for Handicapped People (OPHQ), Emploi-Québec, the CLD of Longueuil, Conseil québécois des entreprises adaptées (CQEA) and the Mouvement Desjardins for their exceptional support of our magnificent cause.


Bravo to all of you and long life to CERTEX!


Jean-Sylvain Pelletier, Chairman of the Board
