In need of help?

The Regroupement des aidants naturels du Québec (RANQ) is an association of community-based organizations in Quebec that support caregivers. The RANQ staff is not mandated to support each caregiver individually. Member organizations, which have designed activities and developed an expertise to support caregivers, can best help you. If you need support, please contact the RANQ member organization closest to you.
