Emergency Resources and Helplines
Are you currently in crisis and need to talk to someone immediately? Here are some bilingual helplines in Quebec. If you are currently in danger, please call 911. If it would make you feel safer, you can ask helpline personnel to stay on the phone with you while you wait for emergency services to arrive, and on your way to a hospital/emergency centre.
