Recently our team member Beenish Mahmood interviewed the team at the Womens Center of Halton.

The Women’s Centre was founded in 1989 when it was realized that women leaving shelters urgently needed aftercare in order to successfully return to the community. They are now the important first point of entry to services and programs for women in crisis, distress, or transition. Their main focus is on providing for the basic needs of safety, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency through client participation in various programs and services. Everything they do is offered in the spirit of “Women Supporting Women”.

The Womens Centre offers various programs and workshops to support, educate and empower women. Some flyers of their current programs have been shared and include:

  1. Settlement Program
  2. Employment Program
  3. Digital Literacy Program
  4. Digital Literacy Workshop
  5. Free Information Session in partnership with Service Canada – Understand benefits after CERB – Wednesday Nov 25 – 2pm
