The Montreal Assault Prevention Centre would like to thank the Government of Quebec, for allocating funds to the CAP program in recognition of our work reducing sexual assault. We would also like to thank the Telus Foundation for their support in the implementation of the Espace sans violence project at Barthélemy-Vimont elementary School.
The MAPC was asked to join an Advisory Committee, organized by the city of Montreal’s Department of Social Diversity and Sport (SDSS) to produce recommendations on the safety of girls and women in public space, for the next action plan on the equal participation of women and men in Montreal’s social life, 2019-2020.
We would like to welcome Nydia Dauphin and Victoria Neira, our two new Action instructors. They are now important assets to the Action team.

I learned the 3 rights, “Safe”, “Strong”, “Free”. I think the one sketch that touched me the most is the one with the uncle (Elsie), aunt (Virginie) and David.
Overall, I thought that the Children Assault Workshop was really helpful and I am really glad that they came to St. John Fischer.
