Women's Economic Empowerment Project

Women's Network PEI has a successful history of developing and delivering strength-based programs to support women to transition from poverty to a sustainable livelihood. Our programs are offered to participants at no cost and are open to women on social assistance, on EI, working less than 20 hours a week or with no income. Potential participants must be out of school for a least 1 year. The Women's Economic Empowerment Programs support women to identify transferable skills and explore various career and employment opportunities.
