Women's Economic Empowerment Discussion Group
August 21, 2017 · 8:00 pm -
August 22, 2017 · 1:00 pm
Porcupine Dante Club
The Ministry of the Status of Women is looking for your input to help develop Ontario’s first Women’s Economic Empowerment Strategy.

The Ontario government has been working to support women’s economic security through a number of commitments, including closing the gender wage gap, supporting access to child care, and the prevention of violence against women.

Building on these commitments, this summer the Province is holding a series of discussion group sessions to help shape a new women’s economic empowerment strategy, so that more women are able to reach their full economic potential.

The Ministry, in partnership with the Timmins Economic Development Corporation, would like to invite you to participate in one of our discussion group sessions.

This will be an opportunity to provide input on our proposed approach to women’s economic empowerment, which is publicly available at Women’s Economic Empowerment: A Call to Action for Ontario.

The session will be led by a facilitator, and will be structured so you can share your ideas on women’s empowerment, discuss our approach and goals, and help us identify key actions and outcomes for this strategy. Food will be provided at this event.

Registration Details:

Participants are invited to register with Meagan Franciscus at [email protected] by August 18, 2017.

Living Space: Summit for Solving Homelessness
September 27, 2017 · 4:00 am -
September 28, 2017 · 1:00 pm
Northern College
You are invited to attend Living Space: Summit for Solving Homelessness in Timmins, Ontario on September 27 & 28th, 2017. This Summit is part of an effort to develop a coordinated homelessness service system to meet the unique needs of our northern communities.

The most current enumeration study conducted by Laurentian University: Centre for Research in Social Justice and Policy titled “Homelessness in Timmins, January 2011 Final Report” found more than 700 people who are homeless in the City of Timmins with similar, proportionate levels of homelessness documented in other northern municipalities. Timmins has a population of over 41,000 people and is located in north eastern Ontario where harsh winter weather for five to six months of the year with temperatures falling below -30 degrees Celsius, is common. Despite these conditions, few resources exist to prevent and respond to homelessness.

Living Space endeavours to coordinate community resources to alleviate, prevent, and eventually end homelessness. Please join us to learn more and find your role in ending homelessness.


Vous êtes invité à assister à Vivre à l’abri: Congrès pour mettre fin à l'itinérance à Timmins, en Ontario, les 27 et 28 septembre 2017. Ce congrès fait partie d'un effort visant à mettre au point un système de services multisectoriels et afin de répondre aux besoins uniques des communautés du nord.

La plus récente étude de dénombrement , menée par le Centre de recherche en justice sociale et politique de l’Université Laurentienne et intitulée «L'itinérance à Timmins, rapport final de janvier 2011», a trouvé plus de 700 personnes vivent sans-abri à Timmins. Cette ville d'environ 43 000 personnes est située dans le nord-est de l'Ontario et endure des hivers difficiles, où durant cinq à six mois la température tombe souvent en-dessous de -30 degrés Celsius. Malgré ces conditions, il existe peu de ressources pour prévenir et répondre à l'itinérance.

Vivre à l’abri s'efforce à coordonner les ressources communautaires qui atténuent et empêchent l'itinérance dans la ville de Timmins. Joignez-vous à nous pour éradiquer l’itinérance.
