Our Women Support Group

The Women Support Group program aims to help women connect and build supportive relationships with each other while discussing common experiences. During our small and informal support groups, you will learn about coping mechanisms, remind yourself of your strengths, listen to other women’s experiences and share your own (if you want to), and be accepted for who you are, without judgement or discrimination.

DAY: Monday (every other week)

TIME: 7:00 P.M – 9:30 P.M

LOCATION: Maple Community Centre
