Centr'Elles is a non-profit organization that provides quality services tailored to the diversity of French-speaking women in Northwestern Ontario.


  • prevent, counter, alleviate and end all forms of violence against women by offering women services such as a welcoming environment, listening, counselling and support, accompaniment and practical assistance and by referring them, as needed, to competent authorities;

  • ease poverty for families of women who come to the centre by offering them food, clothing, a community kitchen programme and, when necessary, help with the costs of transportation and essential personal hygiene products;

Centr'Elles is the only francophone organization in Northwestern Ontario providing services in French  in the field of violence against women. We receive funding through the Victims and Vulnerable Persons Division for the Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis Centres  from the Ministry of Attorney General of Ontario.

Centr’Elles has two locations: one in Thunder Bay to help serve the communities West of Thunder Bay as well as the communities on Hwy 17 East. The satellite office located in Geraldton will help serve the communities in the Municipality of Greenstone on Hwy 11.

We offer services to Francophone women on Hwy 17 East through the offices of the Superior North Victim Services in Marathon and Manitouwadge.
