Infertility Support Group

The hope of this group would be to bring together women who know each other's struggles and to make it known that they are not alone. Infertility is an issue that can go on for years.

WIWC Connection Program Survey

The Centre has heard from women looking for volunteer opportunities. Some wish to support the organization, while others are hoping to relieve their feelings of isolation. As part of our search for innovative measures through which community members can remain engaged, we are launching an intergenerational connection program. With their life experiences, seniors represent an untapped source of support. Be it personal or professional, we could all benefit from their knowledge. Conversely, women of other generations can provide support and companionship, particularly during these challenging times. The potential for diverse mentoring ...
