Shelter Movers provides moving and storage services at no cost to women and children fleeing abuse. We are the only service of this kind in Canada, and our volunteers are no less exceptional. Every year, in collaboration with community partners, our volunteer teams contribute over 15,000 hours to support people transitioning to lives free of violence and abuse. 

Shelter Movers Montreal Region has been operational since September 2020. We are growing and looking to add caring and compassionate people to our volunteer team.
Shelter Movers continues to operate and provide our unique moving and storage services, notwithstanding the COVID-19 pandemic. We have implemented stringent safety measures to protect our volunteers, staff, partners, and clients. While we all do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and stay home, we must remember that home isn’t a safe place for many. Those experiencing abuse may have to spend more time in isolation with their abuser. Job loss and financial insecurity have also become more prevalent during the pandemic, statistically leading to an increase in gender-based violence. Shelter Movers has experienced a 30% increase in the demands for our services since the beginning of the pandemic.
