It is a one-day conference to celebrate the courage of women who are moving forward in their lives. These women can come from many different walks of life and have chosen to move beyond their circumstances. Our goal to provide participants with new tools and motivation to continue to move forward in their lives.
Women Moving Forward Conference is a not-for-profit grass-roots one-day annual conference for women who have embarked on a journey of transition from a life of abuse, neglect and pain towards a future of hope, health and happiness. We are partnered with One Spark, a registered Canadian charity with a vision of a world where no woman faces financial barriers to living a life free of violence. Women Moving Forward Conference is a One Spark event.
As the Committee looks forward, the conference will continue to positively impact the lives of hundreds of women by providing support through coaching, education, motivation and new tools to add to their expanding toolbox.
As the Participants look forward, they will continue to develop, grow and rewrite their legacy to live only the best life for themselves and their families.
As the Conference moves forward, we intend to expand our impact and broaden our reach to an increasing demographic of women who have committed to taking positive steps forward in their life.
We are holding the non-profit event which is FREE to the first 100 women who register.
A light breakfast and lunch will be provided for these ladies. We will also have information tables with other non-profit organizations that support and sponsor women to move forward with their lives. (e.g. Scarborough Women’s Centre). The entire event will be run by volunteers, including speakers, trainers and coaches and will be funded by donations, sponsorship and various fundraising events.
We are passionate about our SEVENTH annual event and know we can make a major positive impact for these women.
