Welcome to our site!
Welcome to the Nelson and District Women’s Centre, a women’s drop-in resource centre located in Nelson–on Sinixt Traditional Territory–and serving the whole of the West Kootenay region. The Nelson and District Women’s Centre functions under the umbrella of West Kootenay Women’s Association, a non-profit organization and a registered charity that was founded in 1972. It is the oldest rural women’s centre in Canada–something for our beautiful West Kootenay region to be proud of!
We invite you to stay a while to learn about the help, support, educational events and opportunities offered to women and children in the area.
