Who are we and what do we do?

Every Woman's Centre exists to promote, develop and support the enhancement of women's lives in Cape Breton communities within the context of a feminist analysis.
The mandate of Every Woman's Centre is to promote the economic, cultural, social and educational interest of women and to initiate and promote programs for the improvement of the physical, emotional and social welfare of women.
Every Woman's Centre is a member of the Cape Breton Interagency on Family Violence consisting of almost 50 community based organizations dedicated to working on behalf of the quality of life of citizens of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. The Centre has various committees that help plan social events, fundraise, organize the Christmas Adopt a Family program, assist with the Back to School program and help the Centre continue to grow to meet the needs of the women's community.
A Bit of History
The Every Woman's Centre is a non-profit organization incorporated on February 27, 1992 under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia. Operating by a volunteer Board of Directors, it is a member of Connect, a network of the province's nine Women's Centre’s. We began as an organization that operated solely on the monies raised in the community. The Nova Scotia Department of Community Services recognized the important work being done for the community and it began providing core funding in 1994. Currently we are funded by Status of Women Nova Scotia and represent women’s voices on many provincial and local boards and committees.
