National Advocacy. Community Action.

Our Cause

We build economic security, promote wellness, and create opportunities for all women, girls, Two Spirit and gender diverse people, and their families. We see a future of gender equality through child care, education, employment, housing, financial security, and more.

Early Learning & Child Care

We are proud to offer Early Learning and Child Care options to families through our licensed child care centres, family home child care providers, and before and after school programs.

Supportive Housing

We are dedicated to providing women and gender diverse people with housing security, and providing integrated support to break the cycle of homelessness.
