Since 1989, Kids Help Phone has provided life-changing help and hope to young people across the country. In 1994, we opened our regional office in Quebec to raise youth awareness and engage the community to donate, fundraise and partner in our mission. In 1997, we opened our Montreal counselling centre. We are a charity delivering anonymous and confidential counselling, information and referrals to young people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in English and French. Often, we are the only source of support available after hours and around the clock in rural and remote communities across the province.

Our counsellors are the most available, accessible direct support, without intermediaries, that a young person can find. By phone or online, we are also a seamless resource — offering a bridge for young people to community supports and services where available. We are able to link them directly to local supports through Canada’s most comprehensive resource database of youth-facing programs.
In 2017, in Quebec:
- Kids Help Phone counsellors received 13,126 phone calls from young people in the province.

- users aged 20+ represented the largest proportion of this age group’s service usage of any province in 2017, at 14%. The national average was 10% in 2017.
