As Canada’s only women’s university, Brescia is uniquely positioned to foster and support women’s leadership. Our mission is to prepare women to lead with wisdom, justice and compassion; never has this mission been more important. As we move forward, we will build on the legacy of our Ursuline values, helping young women develop the confidence, creativity and capability to make positive change in the world.
At Brescia, we believe that post-secondary education should be available to all who want to pursue it, regardless of financial status.
"It would be a positive thing if it wasn’t necessary to have a women’s university
today. But the reality is that women have a unique way of learning and contributing,
and the world is desperately in need of women’s skills, perspectives and approaches
