Monique Lefebvre, Founder
For 38 years,Monique Lefebvre was at the head of AlterGo previously known as the Association régionale pour le loisir des personnes handicapées de l’Île de Montréal. AlterGo mission is to support the inclusion of people with functional limitations by overcoming barriers to sports, culture and recreation.
In 1986, Monique Lefebvre went further and created Formation AlterGo to offer workshops on the many facets of welcome, support and universal accessibility. Formation AlterGo is a key player in developing the required expertise to help private and public organizations meet the needs of citizens or clients with functional limitations. Not resting on her laurels, Monique Lefebvre multiplies projects to support the development of universal accessibility and the creation of a truly inclusive society for all. In 2017, she put together a social innovation plan to reaffirm AlterGo’s commitment towards disabled people. The end goal of the plan was to make sure all elected officials, organizations and the general public advocate for universal accessibility so that it becomes a reality everywhere and for everyone.
