“The Women’s Advocate’s job is to support and refer members to services in the community that will help them in their various situations.

The referrals are for many issues such as sexual assault, intimate violence and other forms of abuse, anger management, attempted suicide, depression, pregnancy, separation, divorce, counseling, stalking, and mental illness.

Privacy, confidentiality, and concern are what this office represents and it is a negotiated contractual right. Many people just want to have someone that will listen to them and show them a little compassion. Some people contact the Women’s Advocate only once, yet others may many times.

It is very hard to concentrate on your job if you are going through problems at home. The Company and the Union both realized this, which is why this position was created in the first place.

If you are looking for information, I have many resources covering a wide variety of subjects – disabilities, divorce, child support guidelines/rates, abuse, assault, and elder services.

The door of the Advocate is always open; I work out of the Kentville Assignment Centre, please feel free to call me. If a call goes to voicemail, I will get back to you as soon as possible. Every call is important to me.”
