PSAC North Yukon Regional Women's Committee gathered items to provide 25 starter baskets to the Yukon Women's Transition Homes. Each basket was filled with the basics to start a new home such as dishes, detergent, paper products, utensils, kitchen supplies including a pot, fry pan, measuring cups, oven mitts and dish towels. Items were sponsored by Canadian Tire and the Great Canadian Dollar Store. PaintMate Decorating Services assisted with pick up of the items. 

The PSAC North NWT Regional Women’s Committee is celebrating International Women’s Day by delivering bags with personal care items to women and youth shelters in Yellowknife. The committee is sending out bags to other communities: Hay River, Fort Smith, Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk.

NWT Women’s Committee thanks all members, volunteers and sponsors.

International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8, is around the corner and I’m eagerly counting the days. As a man celebrating this day, I am aware that I am an ally. At the same time, I believe that we are all affected. To all my sisters: this is your day, let’s celebrate it together. Let’s remind ourselves of the victories achieved, take a deep breath and smile with gratitude and thank all women who are struggling to make this world better for all of us whether in our families, workplaces, communities, nationally and internationally.
