Accompaniment on release from prison (MAPS)
M'appartenir après ma sortie (MAPS) is an individual support service from detention to the community, focusing on the intersectionality of women's needs. It is offered by a social intervention worker who travels to prisons and in communities to offer support tailored to the participant's specific needs.
It is aimed at women in conflict with the law who have experienced violence or gender-based violence, particularly related to human trafficking, and whose situation has been weakened by incarceration or the legal process.
This service is offered upon referral by partners of the Elizabeth Fry Society of Quebec, by other relevant organizations, or upon direct request by the person concerned.
The Elizabeth Fry Society of Quebec evaluates requests based on the availability of places.
MAPS is a pilot project supported by Women and Gender Equality Canada.
