North Shore Women's Center
In the spring of 1973, a small group of women decided to create change, not only in their own lives, but also in the lives of women in their community.
From the beginning, the North Shore Women’s Centre (NSWC) has worked with the belief that women have a right to self-determination in all aspects of their lives, equal access to society’s resources, safety and security of their person, fairness in the administration of justice, and freedom from all forms of discrimination. This premise has inspired the NSWC to lobby tirelessly around such issues as accessible and affordable childcare and housing, pensions and senior’s benefits, and pay equity. The NSWC has also worked, from its inception, to ensure that women & children have access to violence prevention and support resources.
The North Shore Women's Center's offers important local North Vancouver community programs & resources to all women in need, such as:
- Single Moms Support Group
- Basic Computer Training
- Girls Empowerment Camps
- Educational Workshops
- Health & Wellness Programs
