Since 1987, the PART Group has been helping people struggling with a mental health or psychosocial disorder to integrate into the workplace.
Mission and History
Groupe PART's training and integration programs allow students and workers in training admitted to enrich themselves both personally and professionally.
Promote the socio-professional integration of people struggling with a mental health or psychosocial disorder.
Groupe Part today brings together two organizations to promote the socio-professional integration of people struggling with a mental health or psychosocial disorder: Projects PART which offers the possibility of completing secondary studies and PART du chef which offers a program of insertion by learning the profession of assistant cook.
What today constitutes Groupe PART timidly began its activities in 1987 under the aegis of the COSAME organization (community and mental health). in 1990, a training program in cooking and production of frozen meals was launched: Projets PART was born. A little later, a home delivery service for people with loss of autonomy is set up, and a counter for sandwiches and other ready-to-go foods is opened,
In 1997 a new corporation was created: PART du chef who took over PART Projects for cooking training and the production of frozen meals. PART du chef, today a work integration company offering a paid six-month internship leading to a cook's assistant certification, brings together the catering service, the production and delivery of frozen meals and an urban cafeteria. In addition, PART du chef operates a cafeteria in a retirement home. The secondary school program, now under the responsibility of Projets PART, began during the 2000-2001 school year.
In 2005, Projects PART and PART of the chef moved to the Technopôle Angus site in a new building custom-built to accommodate them. This move has the effect of providing the organization with a powerful showcase to demonstrate the essential nature of integration and its beneficial effects for the entire population. The installation at the Technopôle Angus also enabled Groupe PART to acquire premises and equipment allowing for the growth of its activities and the opening of an urban cafeteria: the CaféShop. Since then, year after year, intervention programs for people struggling with a mental health or psychosocial disorder have continued to improve, the offer of catering services and the variety and quality of frozen meals are constantly evolving thanks to a competent team committed to serving our mission.
