About Us

At Women on the Rise, we welcome mothers from all walks of life to come together and learn from one another.  Our motto is ‘Helping mothers to help themselves’- we believe in mutual support, developing friendships, and bearing witness to the challenges and successes of all our members.  We strive to break isolation and connect women with the resources and skills they need to feel empowered in their homes and the greater NDG community.

Our mission

Women on the Rise is a nonprofit organization based in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (NDG) that offers programs and services to mothers and their families. We meet moms where they’re at, offering non-judgmental, empowerment-based individual support, group support, and resources.

Women on the Rise was created in 1991 by the CLSC-NDG (and incorporated in 1999 as a non-profit) in response to two studies that highlighted the need for services for single parents, new immigrants, and families in general.
