Our Mission at YWCA Hamilton

We change the lives of women,
girls and families

Women and girls have the rights, resources and opportunities to shape their own lives and define their communities.

YWCA Hamilton has a long tradition of advocacy in Hamilton Ontario and has been a strong voice, advocating for the improved status of women locally and through our affiliation with YWCA Canada and the World YWCA.

How You Can Help

Our volunteers are ambassadors in the community and embody our vision, mission and values. By volunteering with YWCA Hamilton, you make an impact on the lives of the women and girls that we serve.

The YWCA Hamilton encourages applications from Indigenous, Black and Racialized candidates, as well as candidates with disabilities and candidates who identify as part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community or any of the previously mentioned identities, which may intersect.

YWCA Hamilton Blog

YWCA Hamilton rests on the traditional territory of the Haudensaunee 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.

YWCA Hamilton is dedicated to advancing opportunities for learning and education and is committed to the recommendation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Report.

We encourage you to recognize and acknowledge the land that you occupy – wherever you may be visiting our website from.
