WomenCan, Canada’s information service for women, celebrates IWD by relaunching today!Friday, March 8 2013
Womencan.ca, the Canadian Women's Information Centre, helps women respond to challenges and improve their quality of life. Whether they are working outside the home or parenting, on their own or with a spouse, young, middle-aged or elderly, women face challenges. Womencan.ca is the site to turn to for information and resources to help women take charge of their lives.
For the travelling feminist, here is your chance to take in two important women’s conferences almost back to back at the end of May and early June in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia:
- Interested in maternal health? The Women Deliver Conference expects 5000 participants and hundreds of high-powered advocate and expert speakers May 28 – 30 for the event related to the decade for the health and well-being of girls and women.
- The Global Summit of Women was conceived as the nexus at which all sectors – public, private and non-profit – would come together under the common vision of dramatically expanding women’s economic opportunities globally through exchanges of working solutions. More than 1000 women leaders from every corner of the world will share winning strategies to advance women’s economic lives. This conference has been described as the ‘Davos’ for women.

These are examples of the news and information on womencan.ca, which launches its latest website today, March 8, 2013, International Women’s Day.
The goal of womencan.ca is to be Canadian women’s first and foremost “go-to” website for what is happening locally, regionally, nationally and internationally to support and advance women’s economic, personal, educational, family, and health needs, ambitions and goals. You will also find a Directory of Women’s Organizations in Canada and a section on Resources.
Womencan’s group of dedicated volunteers has devoted themselves to helping women help themselves for over ten years through listings of news, resources and information important to women.
