Careers at YWCA Hamilton

Who We Are

YWCA Hamilton believes that women and girls must have the rights, resources, and opportunities to shape their own lives and define their communities.

With a tradition of advocacy stretching more than a century, YWCA Hamilton is part of a global movement connecting over 25 million women in 125 countries. Founded in 1889, YWCA Hamilton is known as one of Hamilton’s original social innovators and works from a feminist, anti-racist, anti-oppressive framework.

YWCA programs are inclusive of all women, non-binary, gender fluid and trans individuals of all genders.

Our impact is made possible on the lands of the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabeg. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties, within the lands protected by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement, and is directly adjacent to Haldimand Treaty territory. We respect the longstanding relationships with the local Indigenous communities, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Six Nations of the Grand River, and are committed to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report.
