Cambrian Women’s Resource Centre

At Cambrian College, we encourage all women to take action in addressing issues that concern them.

Rooted in Strength, Growing Together

The Cambrian Women’s Resource Centre uses behavioural and lifestyle approaches to aid in the development of an individual’s state of well-being; one that is sufficient and appropriate to comfortably perform physically, mentally, and socially.

Informative seminars and workshops addressing issues on women’s safety, health and wellness, financial and legal issues, substance abuse, and sexuality are also offered.

Interested in Becoming a Volunteer?

Volunteers are always welcome at the Women’s Resource Centre. Volunteers play an integral part in coordinating workshops, fundraisers, seminars, and educational campaigns. Come and network with the Cambrian student body by volunteering at the Women’s Resource Centre. Build up your resume and gain valuable work experience and skills. The centre is also a great place to do mandatory program volunteer hours, with helpful staff and flexible hours.
