Investing in Women’s Futures

Through the Investing in Women’s Futures program, the OWD supports 26 women’s centres in communities across Ontario to provide programs and services to prevent violence against women and promote women’s economic independence.

  • Employment and entrepreneurial training and support
  • Safety planning for women experiencing abuse
  • Public education to prevent violence against women
  • Information and referrals
