About

West Island Citizen Advocacy’s purpose is to improve the quality of life and defend the rights of all those who are living with a handicapping condition or who are disadvantaged in the community by supporting them and matching them with competent volunteers.

What makes us unique:

  • The West Island Citizen Advocacy office was the first such office to open in Quebec in 1976
  • We match people with disabilities (protégés), with volunteers (advocates)
  • The volunteer advocate offers one-to-one support to their protégé

Other services we provide in the community:

  • A variety of courses offered free to the community at large such as ; Conflict Resolution, Active Listening, Emergency First Aid Training
  • Crisis intervention
  • Outreach programs providing practical and social support for seniors
