Unifor presents donations from their Social Justice Fund to both of our shelters. From left to right Jean Walters – UNIFOR, Lisa Nice – Women’s Crisis Services, Mary Smith – UNIFOR, Carolyn Albrecht- Women’s Crisis Services, Mary Zilney- Women’s Crisis Services.

Unifor is the largest union in the private sector representing 310,000 members from coast to coast to coast with over 100,000 female members. Each year the members mark International Women’s Day by holding or participating in events across the country that mobilize towards women’s equality. There is no greater evidence of te lack of gender equality than violence against women.

This year Unifor will donate $146,000 to women’s shelters across Canada, and locally we were presented with a donation for Anselma House and Haven House!

Thank you to all of the members of Unifor who work alongside us to move beyond violence and advocate for women in the workplace and beyond.
