Elspeth Heyworth Centre for WomenElspeth Heyworth Centre for Women is a registered Canadian charitable services agency established on September 2, 1992, in Toronto. The Centre is named after Elspeth Heyworth and honours her legacy of helping people who are less fortunate.
York University established an annual bursary in her name for low-income students enrolled in the social work program.
We seek to empower women, seniors and newcomers to achieve their full potential. We provide services focused on promoting healthy families, community relationships and economic self-sufficiency. We believe this work helps empower immigrant and newcomer women, seniors, and families to enjoy all rights and benefits of living in Canada.
