Chez Doris’ vision is to provide a safe place for women in need while maintaining a high level of confidentiality. We provide meals, respite, clothing, socio-recreational activities as well as practical assistance in a secure and accepting environment. Our hours of operation are from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm, seven days a week. From December 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 our shelter will be open 24/7.
Offered 7 days a week, our drop-in program ensures that every woman that walks through our doors feels safe, respected, and welcomed.
We provide breakfast, lunch and supper as well as emergency food bags, including specially made bags for the nutritional needs of seniors.
Our financial administration program offers financial management services and psychosocial support to over 75 women on a monthly basis.

Chez Doris assists Inuit women who are in a vulnerable situation. It also offers First Nations, Métis, and Inuit women housing placement services.
In partnership with McGill’s Faculty of Law, students offer legal information and assistance to our clients during the fall, winter and spring.
