West Island Womens Centre

Outreach Programme
The Women’s Centre endeavours to provide support to all of the women who seek its services – mothers, women with part-time or full-time jobs outside the home, seniors, and women in financial difficulty. Our outreach initiatives are an opportunity to reach women who are not served in great numbers by our core women’s programme. These groups include female adolescents and women who have recently immigrated to our country.

Healing Together meets on the third Tuesday of every month, and will resume on September 21st.
