The Regroupement québécois des centers d’aide et de lutte contre les agressions à caractère sexuel (CALACS) is a feminist, independent community action organization that brings together some twenty centers across Quebec. The Regroupement québécois des CALACS is working to develop an intersectional approach, to take into account the different contexts of vulnerability affecting the spectrum of sexual assault, and to build a plural movement, representative of the diversity of women living in Quebec.

Accès à l’égalité en emploi 

RQCALACS has an employment equity policy (the full policy is available on request). We encourage people from marginalized groups to apply. Please indicate in your cover letter that you wish to be considered in light of this policy.

RQCALACS recognizes the structural injustices and prejudices that impact our experiences living in a neo-colonial, capitalist state based on discrimination against people based on race, class, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, HIV status, prison history and body type (note that this is not a comprehensive list, but a list of possible examples).

RQCALACS values the unique contributions marginalized people make to our organization and our communities. We also understand that candidates can experience interconnected marginalization in many ways. If you identify yourself as a member of a marginalized group, or have experience outside the mainstream job market, we strongly encourage you to apply.

In order to avoid tokenism during the hiring process, and to respect the choice of whether or not to disclose equal employment opportunity, we will not ask this question during the interview.
