Women’s Directory Advertising

We are proud of the ongoing support and resources we provide women and their families in our community. Are you a woman with your own business? Does your business provide services and products that women in your community might be interested in? If so, our Women’s Directory publication might be the perfect place for you to advertise! Proceeds from this publication will go directly to support the many programs and community initiatives we so proudly support.

Where is our Women’s Directory distributed?

Several hundred copies of this publication will be distributed throughout Elgin County including libraries, our main office, Tourism Elgin and Connections in Port Stanley.

Our sincere thanks to each and every advertiser who participated in this our 8th Edition of the directory. For a hard copy of the directory please contact our Reception Desk by phone (519) 631-9800 or by email info@ywcaste.ca

2021 Publication Update

Due to changes in our program this year and public health recommendations regarding handling of public materials we have decided to not create a 2021 publication at this time. If there are changes to this throughout the year we will let you know. Feel free to access our 2020 publication above. Thank you for your understanding.
