Our Programs & Activities

 The diverse programs of CWN support women and families by providing learning and recreational opportunities for women, their families and their friends. They help us to meet our objective of bringing community together to connect with each other through working, learning and enjoyment. 

Regular Programs

Women Matters

Women Matters covers the work CWN does to mark Celebratory days and issues affecting women. International Women's Day (IWD), Mother's Day, Person's Day, Women's History Month and Women Abuse Prevention Month are the occasions CWN uses to honor the important roles women and mothers play in our in our society. They also give us opportunities to draw attention to the injustices in Canada and across the world, as they pertain to women in general with focus on newcomer and minority women.  Some activities developed  under this program are only for women while others are mixed gender events which allow for men, women and children  to connect, learn and act.
