Atira Women's Resource Society
Atira Women's Resource Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to ending violence against women through providing direct services, as well as working to increase awareness of and education around the scope and impact of men's violence against women and children.
Atira provides free legal advocacy and support related to Employment Insurance, Employment Standards, WCB, Residential Tenancy Law, and Family Law (including representation) to any woman who lives full time, identifies as a woman and meets their mandate. They strive to make their services more accessible to Transgendered, Queer, Two-Spirit, and Intersexed women in need of their services through education and information.
Atira recognizes the barriers and stigmatization faced by women who do not fit into society's gender binary system and the violence, poverty and discrimination they encounter as a result. Atira provides individual and group support and information for women who have been impacted by emotional abuse and/or violence.
