MIRE’s program was created by Portage in April 2012. At the start, MIRE was funded by the Fondation Lucie et André Chagnon. Since 2008, it has been entirely funded by Emploi-Quebec. This program, intended for adults experiencing difficulties in employment integration and retention, celebrated its 15th anniversary last spring.
