Start a Chapter

We are all connected through story.

WCC is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with chapters opening across the country and beyond, including:

  • Peel Region
  • Ottawa
  • Montreal
  • Vancouver
  • …and more to come

Chapter leads provide a liasion between WCC and local facilitators and local partner organizations. Together, we offer our community writing workshop program that is proven to create deep connection, increase resilience, and strengthen self-advocacy among community members. 

If you would like to start a WCC chapter in your city, these are a few things to consider:

  • Chapters proactively engage with local program partners

  • Chapters may offer WCC workshops in languages other than English
  • WCC works with chapters to develop local and national projects and sustainable funding
