Our history

Image: of someone is helping an elderly

Founded in 1975 by Mr. Gilles Lafleur, himself living with retinitis pigmentosa, Le Bon Pilote is a non-profit organization which provides a personal attendant service to people with a visual impairment or loss of autonomy. These people can therefore have access to specialized support from our team of attendants, that is both humane and professional.

Le Bon Pilote is built on a simple philosophy, but of crucial importance: treating others the way you would like to be treated yourself.
