Niagara Women's Enterprise Centre

We provide interest assessments and programs that are designed to allow participants to upgrade their education or learn new, in demand skills through professional instruction and work placement.

As a program under Niagara Peninsula Homes, we have personal and professional community support services that are also available to help participants succeed in reaching their employment goals.

We help to take down the barriers to employment.

TESTIMONIALS

  • "A big weight was lifted from my shoulders, knowing that after all the knowledge I learned during the 3 weeks, I can finally get back on my feet and be more confident in starting a new route in my life."
    Suzanne M (Dietary Server Program)
  • "I realized I can do a lot more than I thought I am able and capable of. I just needed the proper education and support system with female mentors. I now feel my future will be different and I am able to build on my skills from NWEC. I feel more in control of my life now. Previous to starting I felt out of control with a bleak future."
    Lisa (Computer Technology Launch Program)
  • "I am currently working at Accenture that NWEC helped me get full time work at! In September I will be starting Niagara College full time in the office Administration –Health Service Program. Sometimes I can hardly believe the changes in me, 49 years after graduating from high school, I am finally going to College! It’s never too late."
    Jackie (Computer Technology Launch Program)
  • "I am forever grateful for everything the team at NWEC has done for me!"
    Sam (Computer Technology Launch Program)
  • The virtual assistant program was a great steppingstone to help me organize and figure out which of my talents and skills I can utilize when starting my own business as a V.A. (Virtual Assistant). Having the templates and resources that the program provided helped me set up my business. NWEC's ongoing support of women entrepreneurs is another amazing resource. I don't know if I would be as successful in my business if it were not for this program and NWEC!
