Our Lady of Providence is part of an internationally recognized organization with a long history of healing. In the 1800s, Mother Émilie Gamelin and the Sisters of Providence provided shelter to orphan girls and elderly women boarders and later launched the Hospice St-Joseph which was dedicated to the care and shelter of sick and elderly Catholic priests.
In 1947 a Typhus epidemic struck Montreal and Bishop Bourget called upon the the Sisters of Providence to aid its victims. Following the epidemic Gamelin assumed responsibility for the Hospice Saint-Jérôme-Émilien, a facility dedicated to the children of immigrant-Irish typhus victims.
Today the Sisters of Providence serve in 9 countries. The Providence Centre is located in Montreal. It accommodates the General Administration of the congregation, the Centre Émilie-Gamelin and the Sisters of Providence Museums and the Archives.
