Improving women’s economic opportunities and prosperity serves to grow and diversify the local and national economies. While there has been progress in the roles women play in the economy, there is still much work to be done.
YWCA of Hamilton is increasing its focus on improving women’s economic prosperity and opportunities. As part of the redevelopment of their Ottawa Street location, Civicplan was retained to develop a concept plan for the renewal, which included a strategic vision for a new centre of excellence. The Centre for Training, Employment and Entrepreneurship (TrEE) will be rooted in an existing base of programs and services to fulfill important long-term goals of YWCA’s Strategic Plan, while also branching out to better serve women in the Hamilton and Halton region.
This project is currently underway.
