Workshop FAQs

1. How do I book a workshop for my community or event?

The first step is to determine which workshop(s) you would like to host and some potential dates; see workshop descriptions here. Once this is determined, CAAWS will contact potential facilitators to see if anyone is available to deliver; CAAWS has trained facilitators across the country to deliver our workshops. When the date, workshop topic and facilitator are confirmed, the host will be required to promote the workshop, oversee registrations and coordinate logistics (i.e. audiovisual, food and beverage, room set-up, etc.)

The cost for hosting a workshop varies, and CAAWS will do everything possible to make it affordable and accessible. General costs include facilitator travel and honorarium, room rental, food and beverage, audio-visual, etc… Depending on available funding, CAAWS can sometimes subsidize some or all of the costs.

To receive information on workshop availability and calls for host communities sign-up for the CAAWS monthly newsletter, In the Loop . Please contact for more information on hosting and/or pricing.

2. I’m interested in attending a workshop. Is there one coming up in my area?

CAAWS promotes the dates and locations of upcoming workshops on its website; click here for our calendar of upcoming events . If there is no workshop near you, consider hosting or co-hosting a workshop in your community. CAAWS will then work with your organization to find a trained facilitator to lead a workshop.

The cost to attend a workshop is set by the host. Some workshops are offered free of charge, while other hosts require payment of a registration fee in order to offset costs. Subsidies are always available.

3. How do I become a workshop facilitator?

CAAWS currently has more than 100 women across Canada trained to deliver CAAWS’ various workshops. To stay in the loop sign up for our monthly eNewsletter for more details on upcoming training opportunities.
