History
The Women’s Contact Society is a non-profit society registered in 1982 under the Society Act, Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Province of British Columbia.

The Society is a place for all women, whatever their status, age, or lifestyle. We operate according to the principle of feminism: women have the right to be full and equal members of society.

Operations
Monday-Friday
9:00 am to 3:00 pm
We are closing early during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Membership and Governance
Our membership is approximately one hundred (100); the society is governed by a board of directors using the consensus model. Membership fee is a sliding scale from $2-$20.

Pro-Choice Stand
One of the primary objectives of the Women’s Contact Society is to provide an information and resource centre for all women, regardless of their age, race, religion or political beliefs.

In order to reach this objective the Society has taken a Pro-Choice stand regarding pregnancy, which means that the decision must lie with the individual.

The Society is prepared to offer information regarding all alternatives, but does not try to influence the decision of the individual. The Society will also offer support and friendship to each and every woman regardless of the choice she makes.

The Society is open to all women regardless of their thoughts and beliefs on the subject, but there is no room within the Society for women who will condemn others for their opinions or their choices.

The Women’s Contact Society respectfully acknowledges that our office space resides on T’exelcemc territory and that we also have the privilege of living, working and playing on the traditional territories of the Tsi Deldel (Redstone/Alexis Creek), Tl’etinqox (Anaham), Stewecem’c Xqut’tem (Canoe Creek, Dog Creek), Esk’etemc (Alkali), Xat’sull (Soda Creek, Deep Creek), ?Esdilagh (Alexandria), Yunesit’in (Stone), Tl’esqox (Toosey), Ulkatcho (Anahim), T’exelc (Sugar Cane), Xeni Gwet’in (Nemiah), Tsilhoqot’in (Williams Lake), Nuxalk (Bella Coola), Heiltsuk (Bella Bella) and Kitasoo/Xai’xais (Klemtu), peoples.
