Who grants the companion sticker?
Zone Loisir Montérégie cooperates with accredited organizations that are responsible for the accreditation of the need for a companion for applicants requesting a Tourist and Leisure Companion Sticker (TLCS). These organizations will evaluate, in terms of their area of expertise, whether an applicant meets the requirements of the program.
Accredited organizations are selected for their credibility and their expertise in the field of disability. Against this background, public rehabilitation centres become the ideal organizations to play the part. In one single region, several organizations can take part in accreditation, which is done according to the types of disability or mental illness. The accrediting agency is the one who forwards the companion sticker directly to the applicant. Processing of an application usually takes three to four weeks.
