The West Island Women’s Centre provides support to all women who seek its services – mothers, women with part-time or full-time jobs outside the home, women entrepreneurs, seniors, and women in financial difficulty. Our free community outreach initiatives include support groups, Moms & children activities, seniors groups, language classes, female adolescent workshops and programs for women who have recently immigrated to Québec.

Since October 2005, the Centre has been offering Time for Two, a free bilingual arts and crafts playgroup.  This program encourages a positive and joyful experience to share between mother and child as well as offers the opportunity for mothers to interact with each other.  Mothers help to create an enriching environment in which their child can learn and grow.  With the help of the facilitator, they also learn to incorporate reading, art, movement into their daily family life.
