The Board of Directors have worked hard over the past several months to review and revise WINGS of Providence Society’s Bylaws. Our 2021 Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, via zoom. At this meeting, WINGS members approved the amended Bylaw’s presented.

After submitting these Bylaws to Alberta Corporate Registry, WINGS was notified that the Bylaws could not be filed due to minor deficiencies. WINGS Governance & HR committee has worked diligently to address all deficiencies outlined as per Section 9(4) of the Societies Act, and is ready to once again present the amended Bylaws to our members.

There will be a vote via Special Resolution by our membership regarding these bylaw changes on November 30, 2021 at 7pm, via zoom. You can review the Bylaws, Proposed Bylaws, and Track Changes below.

Bylaws – June 8, 2021

Proposed Bylaws – Revised October 6, 2021

Facts About Family Violence

Less than 10% of all sexual assaults are reported to police.

Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.


Women's Voices

I am a mom living in WINGS at the moment with my beautiful kids. I came to WINGS because I was in another shelter, which was only a 21 day stay. They suggested I to WINGS because they provide support and have programs that help with domestic abuse.

I came to Canada as an immigrant and met my spouse here. I was physically and mentally abused by my spouse. He isolated me from society. I wasn’t allowed to to work or to school. I wasn’t even allowed to grocery shopping or to visit family or friends.

WINGS changed that for me. They helped me to grow and showed me that I have the right to be treated as a human being. My counsellor is the best; she helps me to deal with my situation. Now I can speak; I am independent. I can drive a car and I am looking forward to ing to school and work. Thanks to WINGS I can get financially stable and they have made me stronger and a more positive person. This place is a home to me and my children and I wish I could stay here forever.
