The Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre (AWRC) is a feminist, community-based women's organization which opened in 1983. 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.
