I want to get involved

You can also support the Sexual Assault Centre by becoming a volunteer. Our volunteers are valued members of our team, and their contribution to the Centre is inestimable. Between 1984 and 2014, the Centre trained over 700 volunteers who answered thousands of calls. Since every woman is different, each volunteer brings new skills and experiences to our telephone crisis line.

Volunteer recruiting and selection is carried out twice a year, in January and August. New volunteers are required to complete 35 hours of training.


Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? In order to qualify for the selection process, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Woman 18 and over
  • Fluent in both English and French
  • In agreement with the commitments required by the Centre
  • Be available for all training dates and complete a selection interview with the crisis line coordinator


If you meet the criteria listed above and are interested in joining our team, please complete the volunteer application form.

In line with the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (2006), the MSAC recognizes that volunteering fosters responsibility, participation and interaction within the community, promoting development and change while enabling organizations to reach their objectives. Education and awareness are also an important part of our philosophy.

Volunteers’ participation in the Centre’s activities has not only enabled us to respond to victims’ requests and needs, but has also raised the awareness of hundreds of women from many different milieus. Our volunteers have learned more about violence against women and sexual violence, and have become aware of the enormous impact of sexual violence on individuals and the community.

Centre volunteers’ work is concentrated on the 24-hour crisis line, the only telephone service of its kind in Greater Montreal, providing victims and members of the community with information, support and referrals at any time of day or night. It is the commitment of our volunteers that allows us to continue to provide this unique service. The Centre is deeply grateful to all its volunteers for their exceptional work and invaluable contribution.
