Welcome to the 

Alberta Women's Advocacy Association

We are dedicated to bringing real women together so that we can solve real problems. Here you will find other women who have found ways to persevere in the face of adversity, poverty, and trauma.

We have all experienced things that will only affect us because we are women, and each one of us will need help at some point. Wouldn't it be great if we could use our experiences to make sure that no other woman had to suffer?

Whether you are here to give help or seek it out, know that we are here to assist you and advocate on your behalf.

“Never retreat, never explain, never apologize – get the thing done and let them howl!”

"I am a firm believer in women-in their ability to do things and in their influence and power. Women set the standards for the world, and it is for us, women of Canada, to set the standards high."”
