Championing Childcare & Women’s Wellbeing

In partnership with YWCAs nationwide, we proudly stand as Canada’s second largest provider of childcare. Our Early Learning programs touch the lives of over 5,000 children, while our After School programs benefit over 7,000 children and youth. Additionally, our March Break and Summer Camps bring joy and learning to nearly 12,000 young people across the country. We firmly believe that access to quality childcare is pivotal to the prosperity and wellbeing of women and gender-diverse individuals. Throughout our federation, we offer comprehensive, community-based programs that prioritize wellness, parenting, fulfilling basic needs, and foster meaningful community connections for all women, girls, and gender-diverse individuals. Some ways that we foster women and community health are: 
  • Early Learning & Childcare  
  • Afterschool Programs 
  • Wellness Supports  
  • Newcomer Settlement Programs
