The province of Quebec has a special place in our hearts because that is where we began our history. Beginning as a local initiative, it was our volunteers and local partners that allowed us to develop around the world as we are doing now.
Services for Quebec residents
Since the end of August 2020, the FGV has launched a new free service of prevention and awareness to various issues present on the web in the form of a server on the digital platform Discord. This new server, in addition to being a source of information and resources, is also a self-help and peer support community made up of passionate people who want to make the Internet a healthier and safer place for everyone.

with qualifications in social work
with qualifications in the field of education
with qualifications in the field of electronic sports
