A new program at the Centre
In October, the Women's Centre is starting to host an employment clinic to assist women with a variety of skill-building to help their job search. We can help with:
Resume support and feedback
Interview practice and tips
Navigating employment resources
Job searching and referrals
Please share this new service with your networks.

We have been trying out some new ways to connect, as the pandemic has definitely affected our ability to build community at the Centre. Now that we have our safety procedures in place we are ready to explore how to re-connect with each other in new ways.
Do you have ideas for activities that would help us build back our community – in person, online & beyond? Email Sarah to chat further!

Toy Room Planning is Under Way!
Our Toy Room Committee has begun planning for Toy Room 2020. Following up on the success of last year's program, and with the impact of COVID-19 shutdowns, we expect the number of women who will want to access program this year to be high. We are asking for your support to meet the demand.
If you are interested in sponsoring a toy room shift, volunteering, donating money and/or toys, or organizing a toy drive, please contact us.
Explore women’s issues and concepts such as sexism and patriarchy. Participants will also have the chance to gain a better understanding of the Women’s Centre’s Work for Change efforts and initiatives.
