Services and Resources

Library

The Women’s Centre houses an ever-growing library of literature on women’s issues and organizing. Come if you’re writing a paper, come if you need a good book to read, come if you have questions and are not sure where to start looking.

The Women’s Centre Collective’s library is now online. Check it out.

Natural Health

The Women’s Centre herbal heath station offers teas and educational materials devoted to the health and well-being of the female body. We also offer free organic unbleached menstrual supplies and a wealth of information regarding alternative menstrual products.

Resources for Mothers

The Women’s Centre is available for nursing students, staff, and faculty to breastfeed or pump breastmilk.  We have chairs, a couch, table, a refrigerator to store milk if needed, and reading material.  There is no sink, however there is also a large women’s washroom directly across from the Centre.  Feel free to drop by during office hours or contact us to access the Centre outside of hours and for more information!

Child Care

The Centre is dedicated to ensuring that moms can be in on the action. We work to provide a welcoming atmosphere for child and parent, as well as offering to reimburse parents for childcare during our meetings and events.
