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 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.
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 SIXTH annual event and know we can make a major positive impact for these women.

It will determine how you relate to others, your emotions, faith, fear, love and purpose.
