The Women’s Centre also offers outreach initiatives to women and girls beyond our core membership. These programmes include:

Making New Connections is the theme of a series of workshops for new immigrant women living in the West Island. The program covers the local school system, health care, job search activities, services and more.
The women’s centre offers support groups allowing women to meet other women who share similar characteristics or experiences. Participants can share, support each other and receive information and advice.
