We are back in the Centre!

Check below for current and upcoming opportunities to volunteer

The Women’s Centre is a women’s only space which provides services and referrals for all women, as well as a place where women can come and build community. We work with a unique peer model, where women are recognized as the experts in their own lives and volunteers work as women helping other women. We offer women referrals, basic needs assistance, peer support, and many other services. We provide informal social space where women can come and meet with other women over a coffee or a snack. The Women’s Centre is also a place to learn about social issues and work for social change. In general, the Women’s Centre is a very busy and vibrant place to volunteer. Unless otherwise stated on a posting, our volunteer positions are open to women-identifying individuals who are 18 years old or older.

We have over 200 active volunteers at the Women’s Centre

Who manage and support all of our programs and services.

The Women’s Centre offers women opportunities to both receive and provide support, to connect with others and build community through a variety of programs. 

Volunteers are responsible for front line services, advocacy work, fundraising and many other duties. The Women’s Centre’s Peer Model welcomes and encourages diversity in culture, experiences and skills, and we work to build a reciprocal process. 

All women can contribute differently and equitably to the Women’s Centre based on their skills, capacity and experience.

Volunteers often share with us stories of the value they receive from volunteering and the impact that their support provides women in our community.

Watch Volunteer at Women's Centre
The below is just one story of the impact made on and by volunteers at the Women’s Centre.
“I became a volunteer at the Women’s Centre four years ago. I was new to the city and was feeling overwhelmed and lonely. I became part of the peer support team. The Women’s Centre gave me an outlet to meet people, make friends, and be more purposeful. I was able to provide women with resources to navigate through a variety of issues. I have seen first hand the change the Women’s Centre has made in families’ lives. Women leave here with a sense of empowerment and direction. I wish a place like this existed when I was growing up for my own mom”
