This is a handbook for women interested in returning to school.
Adult educators, counselors, and researchers know that one of the biggest struggles facing women who are thinking of going back to school or getting further training is to find information about programs and support services. Several CCLOW BC members thought that a handbook would be very useful for women of British Columbia.
We hope that this handbook is useful to a wide variety of women who are in many different situations.

As a nation, Canada faces critical decisions. A way must be found to ensure a sustainable level of social and economic development that respects the fundamental values and needs of Canadians, in a demanding world. If Canada's social and economic development is to survive the impact of globalization, a strengthened social security system is needed, as well as a comprehensive employment development strategy. Women's perspective and contributions are an essential part of addressing that challenge. It is believed that the principles and recommendations in this brief will help to address these issues.
