Connections  |  October 2015  
Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
How are we doing?
Every year, the Women's Centre asks everyone who has participated in our events, used our services or volunteered with us to fill out our Annual Outcome Survey. By participating in this survey, you make your voice heard and help the Women's Centre to shape future plans and align them with community needs. Please take this short online survey and let us know how we are doing. We would love to have your input!
Volunteer Appreciation Party
There are over 550 volunteers at the Women's Centre who host workshops, run peer support programming, work on social issues, and so much more.
Join us in celebrating their hard work on October 29th @ 5:30pm with finger food and entertainment at the Centre. RSVP at 403-264-1155 or
