Shelter and housing resources

Everyone has the right to have somewhere safe to live. After having experienced sexual violence, you may feel that there is a risk associated with your current housing situation. Maybe the person who committed the violence lives with you or can easily gain access to your home.

Emergency shelter

There are various shelter organizations that can offer you a place to stay in an emergency: a temporary solution that will allow you to escape an immediate risk.

Cancelling your lease

It is possible to request a lease cancellation from the provincial rental control board (Tribunal administratif du logement, formerly known as the Régie du logement) if you experienced sexual violence in your home and you fear for your safety or that of a minor living with you. There are organizations that will provide support throughout the administrative process.
