About Us

Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre (NWEC) is a small, grass roots, women’s training organization with a big heart.

NWEC operates as part of the registered charity, upSKILL Niagara.

NWEC offers group and individualized programs that empower members to engage in entrepreneurship, training and wellness journeys to create lasting, life-changing transformations.

As a social purpose enterprise, NWEC relies on the generous support provided by Government and Community Organizations, Businesses, Donors, Volunteers and NWEC members.

Together your contributions make a significant difference in the lives of the women we serve.


We are currently funded in part by the following:

Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, Office of Women’s Issues


Ontario Trillium Foundation


United Way of Niagara
