Women’s Personal Safety Team

The Women’s Personal Safety Team (WPST) is a critical life-changing program that the Vancouver Police Foundation is thrilled to support. By delivering free personal safety workshops, the WPST team has empowered women to feel safe, aware and has provided thousands of women with the tools to counter asocial violence.

Thanks to donors like you, the WPST program has grown exponentially and empowered over 5,614 women – from high school students, community centre women’s groups, sex trade workers, and even recently, a group of visually impaired individuals.

Several amazing donors stepped up to fund this program last year and we are incredibly grateful to First Light Foundation who have been longtime supporters of the program.


Virtual Workshops

The WPST team was able to adapt the program in 2020 to begin offering Virtual Workshops via Zoom. To participate in one of these upcoming workshops, please email wpst@vpd.ca with “REGISTRATION” in the subject line:

  • July 9 – FULL
  • July 23
  • August 6
  • August 20
  • September 2

These workshops are free, as cost shouldn’t be a barier to safety.
