About us

Aging well in Montréal

Contact us

The ENHARMONIE network offers 10 residences for independent seniors in Montreal. 

Our 1,259 quality apartments are offered at an affordable price.


Who owns the ENHARMONIE residences?

The ENHARMONIE residences belong to the Office municipal d'habitation de Montréal (OMHM). This non-profit organization has close to 50 years of experience in managing housing on the Island of Montreal.

Who are the employees working at ENHARMONIE residences?

Chefs, superintendents, managers...Each of the 100 employees was chosen because they like and respect seniors. Empathy is a must for getting hired. This is one of the reasons why 95% of residents are happy with having chosen an ENHARMONIE residence.

Why is the rent price–quality ratio so good?

We are a non-profit organization. Every dollar from your rent is reinvested into things that residents actually benefit from: apartments, common areas, food, services, activities and the list goes on. In an ENHARMONIE residence, you will not find a pool or other luxury (and expensive) facilities that few people use.  

The residences came to be under the Logement abordable Québec program. Up to 75% of the cost of their construction was subsidized. Rents are used to pay first and foremost for services, not a huge mortgage.

Are the residences certified?

The ten ENHARMONIE residences have their certificate of compliance from the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux. This certificate guarantees that each residence meets the 35 very strict quality criteria. The government inspects each residence regularly to check these 35 criteria.

Sign language class at Résidence Saint-Eugène

Innovative sign language class at Résidence Saint-Eugène makes the news

October 21, 2018 - Several residents at Résidence Saint-Eugène are deaf. They communicate with each other with ligtening speed, using sign language learned in school at an early age. This spring, a group of residents decided they wanted to be able to better communicate with their deaf neighbours by learning their language. It's quite a challenge to practice and memorize the gesticulations and hand movements, but they are making steady progress thanks to Jacinthe Messier, our recreation coordinator, who coaches them step by step.  

Watch the news report by Anne-Louise Despatie on the Radio-Canada website (short version) or on their Facebook page (long version). 

Our reception is open every day of the year.
