Are you interested in a career at the Centre d’aide aux victimes d’actes criminels de Montréal (CAVAC - Montreal Crime Victims Assistance Centre)? See this section of our website (in French) for more information about the available positions.
For the 2016 Victims and Survivors of Crime Week, the Montréal CAVAC has produced 2 video clips based on the Week's theme, "The Power of Our Voices". The clips answer some of the questions commonly asked about victims.
The first video clip illustrates the typical reaction of victims and their family members following a crime. The second emphasises Québec's extensive network of assistance organizations for victims of crime.
For more information, contact us.
We hope you enjoy the clips!
