Atelier Signes d'espoir

Specialized in computer and electronic recycling, as well as manual subcontracting, the Workshop offers employment to people with various functional limitations, while distinguishing itself by the integration of deaf people.

Atelier Signes d’Espoir has been in existence for over 20 years. It allows people with disabilities, mainly deaf people, to practice a trade adapted to their condition in an environment where they can communicate in Quebec Sign Language (QSL). Atelier Signes d’Espoir has a solid reputation for quality and customer service. Atelier Signes d’Espoir operates in several sectors. Atelier Signes d’Espoir is notably the only recycler in Quebec City accredited by ARPE-Québec since November 2013. It ensures the recycling and reuse of computer equipment according to the Recycle Qualification Office (RQO) standards.
