Welcome to the AWRC
Who We Are
The Antigonish Women’s
Resource Centre (AWRC) is a feminist, community-based women's
organization which opened in 1983. SASA stands for Sexual Assault Services
The Women’s Centre grew
out of the work of women in the community who wanted to address issues
facing women and adolescent girls and who wanted to provide
woman-centered services that support women in making positive changes
in their lives. Through our multi-issue, social change and service
provision mandate we address, in an integrated way, the broad and often
complex range of issues facing women and their children.

Women’s Centre for information and problem-solving support.

Women also come to use our lending
resource library, to hold meetings, to volunteer, and to participate in
annual women’s events.
The Women’s Centre is open
to women and adolescent girls from all cultures and backgrounds. It is
a friendly and safe place for women to meet, to share knowledge, and to
work on common interests and for social change. It is a place to learn
from each other and to contribute to building a healthy community.
