Niagara Women's Enterprise Centre is a community based, charitable organization providing employment and self employment supports and services to women in the Niagara Region.
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.

"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."
"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."
"Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre opened new doors, introduced and connected me to a new career path. It has always been important to me to work in a career field that enabled me to be part of helping other people. The training was provided in a safe atmosphere while providing direction and contacts that I would not have been aware of otherwise."
I went back to school at NWEC from September to November of 2020. I enrolled in the Computer Technology Career Launch Program at 54 Years of age. I was scared at first, but as I started to learn my fears diminished. My instructors were very patient and supportive of me and genuinely cared about me and the other women. I learned about Windows 10, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, And PowerPoint. We also touched on graphic arts (Canva) and coding with some Code Pink. I was taught to put together a proper Resume and participated in a Mock Interview, this showed me where I needed improvement and it helped me to gain confidence in my abilities.
"I am forever grateful for everything the team at NWEC has done for me!"
