The Multitherapy Proaction Clinic is a private multidisciplinary facility opening in September 2012 in Ville Saint-Laurent. It is being launched by Agathe Tupula Kabola, M.P.O., a dedicated speech-language therapist, with the intention of creating a unique, all-in-one centre offering a diverse range of services, centred on the individual and the family as a whole.
Agathe Tupula Kabola is a graduate from the University of Montreal, has a Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology and is member of Ordre des orthophonistes et audiologistes du Québec (OOAQ) since 2010. She also holds a clinical certification from Speech-Language & Audiology Canada, recognized as an international standard. Her first contact with the profession leads her to private practice as well as the Institute Raymond-Dewar (IRD), an establishment of the public health system which offers rehabilitation services for the following clientele: deaf, hearing impaired, deaf-blind or presenting language or auditory processing disorders. Agathe’s awareness of the importance of being close to people, supporting families dealing with loved ones with disabilities and helping them have quick access to the services required for their needs becomes the vision of the service which she desires to offer to the population as a Speech-Language Pathology professional.
Driven by her passion, her determination, her desire to innovate within the practice of her profession and her taste for entrepreneurship, she establishes, in 2012, the Multitherapy Proaction Clinic in order to bring together under one roof, more or less fifteen experts sharing the same values of respect, mutual support, professionalism, innovation, enjoyment at work and family approach.
Her vision of the profession leads her to establishing an innovative method of access to paramedical services by creating several services, centered on the individual and his or her family as a whole, and by using new means of intervention, such as telepractice services, and communication engines like blogging and social networks. Conscious of the current communication difficulties, she is eager to share her knowledge in order to sensitize the families and close social network and provide useful recommendations and tips intended to better equip them alongside speech difficulties.
In May 2015, Multitherapy Proaction Clinic was winner of the 31st Gala Alpha (category « Jeunes entrepreneurs – Professionnels »), organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent and Mont-Royal and its partners. This contest recognizes businesses standing out from the competition with their drive, their creativity and their performance.
As part of the 31th edition of the Alpha Gala attended by over 300 business representatives, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent and Mont-Royal granted thirteen awards to companies in Mont-Royal and Saint-Laurent.
On May 14th 2016, Agathe Tupula Kabola won the award in the category Entrepeneur de l’année at Gala d’Excellence Vision et Inspiration organized by Réseau des Entrepreneurs et Professionnels Africains (REPAF). Since 2005, this gala honours the excellence and exemplary companies and individuals whose vision and actions are an inspiration to society, both economically and socially.
Moreover, on May 26th 2016, Agathe was awarded in the category Entrepreneur of Prix Relève d’excellence 2016 du Réseau HEC Montréal. The contest’s mission is to recognize and celebrate the professional success of graduates HEC Montreal 35 years-old or less. This 31th edition was attended by nearly 300 business graduates and people who came to greet the determination, talent and achievements of the next generation.
In addition, on June 17th 2016, Agathe won the Prix Innovation-Desjardins 2016, awarded by Ordre des orthophonistes et audiologiste du Québec. She was honored for creating a vlog giving practical advice using videos to better equip parents and caregivers who deal with language disorders in everyday life. This tool was evaluated as accessible and judicious, in addition to allowing a significant public knowledge of speech therapy.
In November 2017, Agathe was honoured to be invited by Les Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec (LOJIQ) to be part of the Québec delegation made up of a dozen women entrepreneurs and professionals, to take part in the Conference of Women of La Francophonie in Bucharest, Romania. The Conference under the theme “Creation, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Growth and Development: Women Make a Difference! was held under the patronage of the President of Romania and in the presence of the Secretary General of La Francophonie, Michaëlle Jean. The event brought together more than 700 participants from politics, financial and international institutions, the private sector and civil society. One of the objectives of the Conference was to set up a Francophone Network of Women Entrepreneurs to exchange good practices on the start-up, financing and expansion of a business. Thus, Agathe Tupula Kabola contributed her expertise in the reflection on the issues and challenges of women’s economic empowerment as well as on gender equality in Francophonie.
