Our values

This report, led by the West Island CALACS, focuses on the impact of social involvement at the CALACS and its impact on the personal recovery of sexual assault survivors. 

As a part of Victims and Survivors of Crime Week 2016, Les Alter Citoyens produced a video entitled “The power of our voices.” (Available in French with English subtitles)


We wish to eliminate sexual assault and live in a world exempt of violence. To do this, support, prevention and advocacy services must exist in continuous interaction. We wish to build a society composed of members that are economically, socially and politically equal and abolish all systems of oppression, while recognizing the intersection between patriarchy and other contexts of oppression. The values that guide our work are equality, solidarity and empowerment.

Our mission


Shared power that is exercised without discrimination; equitable and inclusive treatment that is ensured to a diverse group of women.


The individual is personally and collectively engaged in respecting and realizing the mission of the organization.

An action in which women, workers, activists and the organization are encouraged both to achieve personal and common aspirations using their own power and means while being accountable for their choices and actions.

The West Island CALACS is a non-profit feminist organization that advocates against sexual assault. It provides services to women and prevention services for the community.
