Happy 40th!


For 40 years Interval House has continued to make history alongside the women’s movement in Canada. It is with the support of incredible people like you that we have come so far in protecting women and girls, and advocating for their rights.

In the 1990s, Interval House started a groundbreaking program called Building Economic Self-Sufficiency (BESS). BESS is an employment program that helps abused women overcome their specific challenges. Over the years hundreds of women have taken the program, and many of them are on their own paths to success.

On June 5th, 2013 we celebrated 25 strong women who recently graduated from the BESS program and also honoured a special group of people we call ‘Champions’. Each of the dozen honourees has helped lay the foundation for much of our work.
