Who We Are

Taking Charge! Inc. is a non profit organization assisting single parents and women to achieve self-sufficiency and take charge of their lives.

In 1995, Taking Charge! began operations as a joint Federal-Provincial pilot program undertaken in Manitoba through the Federal Strategic Initiatives program. With the completion of this initial partnership in March of 1999, Taking Charge! ushered in a new era with an agreement with the Province of Manitoba.

Today, Taking Charge! has established a strong partnership at the provincial level and works in accordance with Manitoba Jobs and the Economy and Manitoba Family Services.

Governed by a community based Board of Directors, Taking Charge! is committed to providing programs and services that are client driven and responsive to labour market demands.

The staff of Taking Charge! is experienced and knowledgeable in the employment, education, and training fields. Information and support is provided so participants make informed decisions. Individuals participating in the Taking Charge! program are prepared, determined, and committed to achieving their goals.


"Not only has Taking Charge! helped me succeed, but also taught my kids that obstacles can be overcome in life."
