Note: WSC’s Social Café for Women is not currently available. We plan to restart the program once a new funding partner is found.
Working Skills Centre is hosting Social Café for Women, a FREE weekly networking and learning opportunity geared towards immigrant women, especially caregivers and nannies from the local community. Our Social Café began on Saturday, November 23, 2013, and we continue to have amazing workshops weekly.Workshops and activities will take place from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm every Saturday. This is an opportunity for immigrant women to build their communication skills, gain practical knowledge, participate in social activities, build a network and learn more about Canada. This program is sponsored by RBC Foundation.
