Virtual Guardians Foundation

A new prevention and awareness service focused on for gamers is available in Quebec!

Who are we?

Founded in 2018, the Virtual Guardians Foundation is a Registered Canadian Charity whose mission is to be a beacon on the Internet for people in distress as well as to promote the responsible use of digital technology.

The staff is made up of multinational and multicultural volunteers from the fields of health, education and electronic sports. Although we have partnerships and activities in several countries, our conferences and in-person workshops are mainly held in Quebec.

Charity number: 77501 0689 RR00001

Join us!

Become a Virtual Guardian yourself! Take one of our training courses to learn how to become a prevention asset and a positive vector within your community, family and workplace.

Considering the situation with COVID-19, we choose to postpone our major reorganization and focused where we were needed the most : Online, making sure the kids had a supervised virtual place of gathering to be entertained and educated. This is causing a delay in the release of our formations.
