Are you going through a difficult time? Our peer supporters provide one-on-one support and mentorship by phone, email, or in person. The program is for women facing challenges in their everyday life. This program is open to all women and is offered in the spirit of “women supporting women”.

If you are looking for a service in the community, we are here to provide you with information and referrals to various agencies and community services that will meet your needs.
Access information on many common issues women are facing. Receive brochures, booklets, and other resources on the topics about which you are seeking more information.
Our diverse pool of volunteers and team members speak a variety of languages. Depending on availability, a support session may be available in a clients’ first language. Interpreting services are provided for all women who are experiencing abuse, though 48-hour notice may be required in order to book an appointment.
EMERGENCY LEGAL CERTIFICATES
A two hour Legal Aid Certificate may be available for women who are experiencing abuse and/ or an immigration crisis, and are in need of immediate legal advice. Eligibility depends on circumstances and income. Please call for more details.
HOLIDAY FAMILY SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
The Women’s Centre accepts applications for both sponsored (those families who are in need) and sponsors (those who wish to sponsor a family) starting in October. This program allows for complete anonymity, as only The Women’s Centre will know the names of the sponsored family. These families can provide wish list for each family member. Our sponsors use this list to shop for a family in need. This program allows our community to come together and spread a little happiness during the holiday season. Please contact the Centre for more details. The deadline for all applications is November 1st.
