The South Asian Women’s Community Centre is an organization that helps women achieve their full potential in the Québec and Canadian societies and also helps them become independent. It offers a variety of services, all of which are free and are available in French, English and all the South Asian Languages.
The South Asian Women’s Community Centre is dedicated to the empowerment of women of South Asian
origin. The organization is committed to support South Asian women and their families facing discrimination on the
basis of physical and mental ability, religion, colour, nationality, age, sexual orientation and identity, caste, and class.
The organization will be guided by the international Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination
Against Women (CEDAW) and the Canadian and Quebec Charters of Human Rights.
The organization will develop programmes to facilitate women of South Asian origin gaining autonomy, working
collectively, making inroads into Canadian and Quebecois society and seeking redress against discrimination. In view of the unique socio-cultural background of South Asians, the organization shall aim to help women of South
Asian origin develop their creative potential to the fullest, raise their social and community awareness, and create a
sense of cohesion within the South Asian community.
