About us

Our mission

The West Island CALACS is a non-profit feminist organisation that advocates against sexual assault and provides services to female survivors of sexual violence and prevention services within the community.

Vision statement

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 values

Equality

Shared power exercised without discrimination and equitable and inclusive treatment ensured for a diverse group of women.  

Solidarity

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

Empowerment

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.
