In 2014, a research report on the organization of services for sexual assault victims offered by designated centres in Québec presented six recommendations based on the evaluation of the implementation of those centres.
In the wake of the #metoo movement in 2017 and based on those recommendations, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) mandated the Montréal Sexual Assault Centre (MSAC) to establish a provincial coordinating body for the designated centres responsible for providing medico-social intervention services to victims of sexual assault.
This led to the creation, in July 2019, of the Support Service for Designated Centres Providing Medico-social Services for Sexual Assault Victims.
The Support Service is allied with designated centres across Québec.
Our mandate is to support the members of the medico-social teams (counsellors, nurses and doctors) in the designated centres by responding to their clinical, organizational and training needs.
