Old Brewery Mission

Social Service


Since 1889, the Old Brewery Mission has acted as a safe place and a beacon of hope for homeless men and women in Montréal, providing them with vital services. While proud and encouraged by the difference it has made in the lives of those served over the years, the Mission recognizes that the reality of homelessness has changed considerably over time and that it must adapt its services to better meet the needs of individuals.


Our Impact

The valuable support of key players and partners over the years has enabled the Mission to expand its vision of ending homelessness. As a result, the Mission has moved from a reactive to a proactive approach in developing services that focus on permanent and sustainable solutions to chronic homelessness.

To reach this goal, the Mission has implemented a number of very successful initiatives, providing its clients with the necessary guidance and support to leave shelter life behind once and for all and move into their own homes.

  • Response to needs (2021–2022 data):
    • 332 adapted housing units in Montréal
    • 280 women have benefited from the services of the Patricia Mackenzie Pavilion
    • 718 men have benefited from the accommodation and support services of the Webster Pavilion
    • 11,265 men and women were transported to resources by the our shuttle bus
    • 1,085 people were accommodated in the COVID isolation zone
    • 550 people were accommodated in the emergency accommodation and support services at the Hôtel-Dieu Hospital, including 139 women, 401 men and 10 trans people
    • An average of 109 people came to the Keurig Mission Café each day

How your gift will be used

A legacy gift has the potential to change the lives of thousands of  people experiencing homelessness in Montreal by helping them to reintegrate into the community. It is possible to end chronic homelessness. A gift in Will is a generous and profound act that will allow us to continue our vital work of rebuilding lives. It ensures that your values live on, and that men and women experiencing homelessness can reclaim their rightful place in our society.

This is the cause that my family and I care very deeply about. I was even baptized at the same church as the Mission’s founders. My interest in the Old Brewery Mission dates back to my teenage years, when my parents were donors and supporters of the Mission.

Now, I’m so proud of everything you’ve accomplished.

Miriam Tees, a donor for over 25 years has chosen to make a gift in WILL.
