Peer Support Groups

Bringing people together

As part of the services and supports we offer, Empower is available as a meeting space for a number of groups on a regular basis. Along with these meetings, we also host workshops and events when possible.

The following is a list of Empower’s Peer Support groups.  Please note that, in addition to these, we occasionally hold additional workshops and events as opportunities arise.

Craft Group

Meet with us on Thursday afternoons from 2 to 4 pm. Please contact Empower to find out the location. Share your skills and work with us on a project. Help us show that art can be created and shared across disabilities.

Dinner Club

Looking for a great evening of food and conversation? Join us at a different restaurant every two months from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. Please share and learn with us. We often discuss the accessibility of the restaurant during this event.

Women’s Group

Women with disabilities get together to share stories and information. We meet every month at Empower, the Disability Resource Centre or in the community. Women share ideas, give a workshop, or talk about an interest or concern.

Men’s Group

Join other men with disabilities as we share stories and information. Every month we meet at Empower or in the community to give workshops, share ideas, or talk about an interest or concern.

Peer Group – Men & Women

Men and women with disabilities get together to share stories and information. We meet every month at Empower or in the community.

Debbie Prim Memorial Courtyard and Garden

The Garden, created by people living with disabilities and in the spirit of accessibility, has an accessible pathway, a wheelchair swing, and several accessible flower beds. Want to be involved? Our Garden Committee meets monthly and there’s always a weed that needs plucking or a plant that needs watering. Come to learn, share your knowledge, or simply stop by to smell the flowers.

90% of Canadians know at least one person with a disability.

A recent survey conducted by Pollara on behalf of BMO found that most people within Canada know someone with a disability.
