Is your cancer treatment centre far from home?
Will you have difficulty due to the need to travel frequently?
Are you finding your energy level too low for all the travel that treatment demands?

​The Quebec Cancer Foundation offers you accommodation that is affordable, comfortable and safe near one of the large radiation oncology centres,  thanks in part to a financial contribution from the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux. Our Lodges in Montréal, Gatineau, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières will welcome you along with a companion for the entire duration of your treatments.

Whether it is for one night, a few days or several weeks, we are here for you! Cancer treatment can involve frequent and numerous trips to a hospital, a very demanding schedule that can prove too taxing when it adds to the burden of the side effects which cancer is already imposing.

Living in one of the Foundation Lodges is one way you can simplify life and allow yourself to concentrate on getting well and not on the logistics of getting treatment for your disease.
At first, most of my patients are anxious about staying in another city and living with people they do not know. But as time goes by, they are so happy about staying at the Foundation. Being surrounded by care and having someone to talk to really helps people cope. They are treated so well that they feel right at home. And, more than anything, they are relieved and grateful to have a place to stay right next door to the hospital.” Dr Félix Nguyen, radio-oncologue.

A warm and welcoming living environment

Our goal is to provide you with all the conveniences you need along with the warmth and friendliness of a home environment. Our lodge network comprises 130 rooms with single or double occupancy, and all come equipped with a private bathroom.

A meal allowance is included for your stay at the Foundation, but our Lodges have well equipped kitchens if you decide to prepare your own special meals. You will find yourself well looked after by our staff, both employees and volunteers, who are considerate and compassionate.

Common spaces for relaxing and sharing with others

In addition to the rooms, the Lodges have several common areas to enable you to unwind and also get to know other residents who are dealing with issues similar to your own. Throughout your stay, you can enjoy using our game rooms, libraries, TV rooms, exercise rooms and our well  laid out outdoor areas.

Services and activities for all

At the lodge, you will find many social activities, community events and recreational pursuits which are organized every day. You’ll be able to take advantage of services, such as massage therapy, art-therapy and kinesiology.

It is our belief that, over and above a cancer diagnosis, life must go on and be as tranquil as possible. That is what we try to offer you!
