Can the companion sticker be used outside of Quebec?
The Tourist and Leisure Companion Sticker (TLCS) are earmarked for expansion. These last months, a close cooperation has been established among French organizations. Zone Loisir Montérégie and its partners truly believe that the program meets the legitimate needs of people with a disability or mental illness, whatever their place of residence. The program is a tradable initiative québécoise, reflecting the know-how of Zone Loisir Montérégie across the Atlantic, but all the more so as it has a broadening effect for Quebec companion sticker owners who will be entitled to use it in France. Reciprocity has been anticipated for the residents of France travelling to Quebec and will enable members of both communities to strengthen their relationships. Exporting this expertise remains in our plans, but our priority is to increase the number of companies and/or organizations joining the program and the number companion sticker holders TLCS.
We are also in contact with the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability to find both sources of financing and partners who will develop the program throughout other Canadian provinces. The program is therefore of Quebec, Canadian and even international scope.
