About CIViS

Located in Saint-Lambert at La Traversée’s facilities, this new centre helps to streamline the psycho-socio-legal process for victims of sexual abuse (assault, incest, exploitation), regardless of their age or gender. They can receive the help they need under one roof in a welcoming and safe environment, at no cost and in full confidence.

Unique

CIViS is a unique project in Quebec, coordinated by La Traversée and run by a multidisciplinary team with cutting-edge expertise in sexual abuse. The ministère de la Justice du Québec also supports it.
