Women's Network PEI (WNPEI) is a not-for-profit organization based in the province of Prince Edward Island, Canada. We work to strengthen and support community efforts to improve the status of women in our society. Through our project work, we promote equality, using feminist analysis and practice, and address issues that affect women in our province. We provide a forum for the voices of PEI women and opportunities for women to realize power, knowledge, skills, abilities, vision and financial security. We also act as a referral service to help women find programs and services they may need.
