Northern lights * CALACS Baie-Comeau is a non-profit community organization, founded in December 1990. Each administrative region of Quebec, except northern Quebec, has at least one Help Center. (CALACS : centre d'aide et de lutte contre les agressions à caractère sexuel, that is, center for help and action against sexual assault)

The CALACS are the result of the initiative of women who have experienced one or more assaults of a sexual nature. They decided, together, to give each other tools to help other women who are or have experienced similar situations.

CALACS is a safe place where women can share their experiences, live their emotions as well as express their ideas without fear of being judged or challenged. Women can discuss their experiences with a worker or with each other and thus realize that they are not alone.
