Who We Are
For forty years of operation, the Corner Brook Status of Women Council has been engaging in activism and providing direct services for women. We are governed by a volunteer board consisting of 13 women.
We hold monthly meetings and participate in subcommittees to ensure efficient and reliable operation of the Women's Centre.
We are concerned with the status and well-being of women and families.
We are a community resource connected with many other community, agency and government based organizations.
