Our history

In 2020, we will celebrate 150 years of the YWCA in Canada.

Then, as now leaders of YWCA Canada have acted and advocated to right injustices faced by women and girls in Canada through timely research, responsive projects, pro-active initiatives and relevant advocacy campaigns.

Learn more about YWCA’s work over the years- from advocating for better child care services, affordable housing, improved education and training for women, to violence prevention and much more.
