Who are we?
The CSL is a community organization that is dedicated to promoting health and well-being for women and non-binary people of sexual diversity. The CSL was founded in 1996 as the Groupe d’intervention en violence conjugale chez les lesbiennes (Lesbian Domestic Violence Intervention Group), and has over 25 years of expertise in this field. In 2008, responding to concerns over the lack of accessible services for lesbians+, the group adopted a broader mission and became the Centre de solidarité lesbienne.
The CSL’s role, which is rooted in feminist principles, is to improve the lives of lesbians+ by offering them services and assistance relating to domestic violence, well-being and health that are geared to their specific situation. The CSL is a place for dialogue and mutual support by and for lesbians.
