Our mission

Accueil aux immigrants de l’Est de Montréal (AIEM) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help the socio-economic integration of immigrants and visible minorities, enabling them to grow into independent citizens of their new community.


Founded in 1986 under the name Accueil aux immigrants de Saint-Léonard, in close collaboration with The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, the organization began its efforts mainly among refugees from El Salvador, Chili and Guatemala. Since then, their work has never stopped expanding.   The Organization evolved according to its users’ needs. With this in mind, in 2005 l’Accueil aux immigrants de Saint-Léonard became l’Accueil aux immigrants de l’est de Montréal (AIEM).
Certified in 2014 by the Ministry of Immigration, Francisation et Intégration, the AIEM evolved into a vital resource for the integration of immigrants in the East of Montreal.
