About the Niagara Women's Enterprise Centre

Niagara Women's Enterprise Centre (NWEC), has a mandate to provide assistance, training and resources to unemployed and/or underemployed women in the Niagara Region who want to obtain employment or create a business.

NWEC Staff

We have established and provided sector specific certificate training programs and various employment supports to over 800 women across Niagara since 1999 in an effort to relieve women living in poverty.

Who We Are

NWEC is a charity of Niagara Peninsula Homes, also known as Niagara Peninsula Community Resource Centre.

We have developed and continue to encourage a variety of community partnerships with employers, businesses, educational institutions, employment agencies and organizations.

In 2007 NWEC was chosen as one of a few groups in Ontario for a pilot project to assist women who are victims of domestic abuse to gain technical skills.

NWEC and Social Enterprise

NPH promotes business as a social enterprise, by achieving social goals that benefit employees, area businesses and the community.

NPH programs are specially designed to develop social enterprise and achieve these goals.

Programs include NWEC's Customer Service and Retail Professional Certificate Program, which develops learning skills through the NPH social enterprise, Niagara Presents.

Feel free to contact us to learn more about NWEC's Programs and Services.
