LETTERS

Cher WEdf:
Je suis un conseiller en orientation à l'École secondaire catholique Garneau d'Orléans. Nous désirons réapprovisionner notre "Banque d'information" sur les carrières avec des ressources pédagogiques plus récentes, révisées et à la fine pointe de l'actualité. Plus précisément, nous manquons de "monographies" et de matériel éducatif semblable.

Auriez-vous l'amabilité de nous faire parvenir deux copies de toute information disponible et pertinente reliée à la carrière de "sciences sociales," préférablement en français mais aussi en anglais, que ce soit sous forme de monographies, de brochures, de dépliants, etc. Si vous avez les noms et adresses d'Association ou d'Institutions qui pourraient nous être des sources d'informations additionnelles, pourriez-vous s'il vous plaît nous les fournir.

Dear WEdf:
I am writing to introduce the National Women's Education Centre (NWEC). NWEC was established in 1977 as the only governmental women' s centre affiliated to the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Japan. It conducts study, exchange, research and information programs on women's education and family education.

NWEC houses the Information Centre for Women's Education. It collects materials and other learning information on women and the family from Japan and overseas countries, and provides them to public use. It also constructs various databases and provides them to women's centers and other facilities and organizations all over Japan through the Women's Information Network System (WINET) .

Moreover, the Information Centre undertakes networking among related organizations, facilities, groups and individuals by publishing, disseminating and exchanging various materials. For readers in overseas countries, an English newsletter titled NWEC Newsletter is published biannually to widely disseminate information on NWEC's activities and the situation of Japanese women.

We have learned that your organization conducts activities concerning women, and we would like to exchange information and materials. We would also like to receive and exchange information and materials from other women's organizations in Canada. I sincerely wish that this letter is the first step towards the solidarity between your organization and the NWEC.

Sincerely
Mizue Maeda
Director General
