Upcoming Community Events

Thursday, 23 January 2020 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

We will be discussing how the group is going forward from here and value your input! We are hoping to make this group where we can come together as women and lift each other up and learn from each other. We all have something to share or something we want to learn. Let's do it together!

Membership forms will be available.

Thursday, 23 January 2020 - 6:30pm

Alanis Obomsawin’s 53rd film documents the story of a young boy who spent all five years of his life in hospital while the provincial and federal government argued over who was responsible for paying for the boy’s care. After facing criticism for the boy’s death, Parliament passed a motion in support of “Jordan’s Principle,” a policy meant to ensure equal access to government-funded health, social and educational services, although living up to the principle took a decade to be fully recognized.
