Welcome to the Women's Place Resource Center based in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.
Our mission is dedicated to the well-being and economic status of women in the Kings, Annapolis and Digby Counties.
We work with communities to achieve this mission through a variety of Services as well as creating a safe place for women to gather, share, grow and be. By supporting women, we recognize that we in turn nurture the growth of children, families and the entire communities that we serve.
Our Sister Fair event is a celebration of womens' expressions in music and art. It also raises awareness of the Women's Place Resource Center and the Frances Mills-Clements Bursary.
In 2011-2012, the Women's Place Resource Center provided support to over 1,300 people over the phone, in-person and through programs and initiatives.
The Women's Place Resource Centre in partnership with Bear River First Nation held the Honouring Our Sisters event on May 10, 2016 at the Bear River Cultural Centre. It was a time to honour and remember all of the missing and murdered indigenous women and come together physically and in spirit to inspire us to join together to end all violence against women and girls.
The link to an article by Jonathan Riley of The Digby Courier about the event can be found in our Internet News menu.
We would like to extend our sincere thank you to all involved in this event's success including our sponsors:
