As a member agency of YWCA Canada, YWCA Cambridge is part of a national movement known as the country’s oldest and largest women's multi-service organization. Locally, we provide child care across the city, as well as summer camps, youth programming and women’s pre-employment services and support. In 2010, the WIGG boutique was born out of a need to generate funding to support our programing and services (since YWCA Cambridge has no core funding) and also out of a desire to highlight some of the amazing woman makers and designers Canada and the world has to offer. We believe empowered women empower women, and that certainly extends to the world of commerce, which is why a purchase at our store means supporting woman makers, woman workers and women accessing our services.

YWCA Cambridge Testimonials
Participant Small Steps Program
“It is an amazing and supportive program! I’d advise anyone to go. I came into this program with crippling anxiety, and within weeks of routine and support, I started feeling better.”
Participant age 12
"I liked all the activities we did, but especially friendship soup; it reminded me what I wanted in a friendship and that it's okay to not be friends anymore if you don't have the right recipe."
