Receiving medical attention can often be important, even if it has been a while since the assault. Quebec has designated hospitals and local health centres that have teams composed of psychosocial support workers, nurses and doctors trained in helping people of any gender or age who was sexually assaulted. The services below are available to people of all genders and include: testing for sexually transmitted infections, blood tests, vaccinations, morning-after contraception, HIV prophylaxis, a forensic examination, and psychological support. To find a designated centre in Montreal, please consult the list below.

  • If you were assaulted 5 days ago or less, it is recommended you go to a designated centre as soon as possible.
  • If you were assaulted 6 days ago, call ahead and make an appointment.
  • If you were assaulted over a year ago, contact another resource.
