In the early 1990s, there was no specific agency in Durham Region dealing with issues of violence against multicultural women, immigrant and refugee women in the region. A group of dedicated volunteers researched the best ways to meet the needs of these specific women. There was a need assessment and focus group sessions conducted with women from diverse backgrounds who experienced violence and abuse by Barbara Rahder and associates. Following the needs assessment and focus group sessions, participants recommended that a counselling centre was needed in the region. A counselling centre, the Women’s Rights Action Coalition of Durham (WRAC) was established in 1993. The name was changed to the Women’s Multicultural Resource and Counselling Centre of Durham (WMRCC) in 2003 to more accurately reflect the agency’s services and target population. The organization’s aim is to provide culturally sensitive services to women, youth and children from diverse backgrounds.

When most people consider legacy, they envision money or property left to someone.  But at PCAL Financial Group, we believe legacy transcends this simple definition. Legacy is the footprint you leave that enables those following you trod an even more impactful path.

Our vision at PCAL Financial Group is to partner with families and organizations in creating a footprint so expansive that generations after the next can experience life beyond our expectations. It may be in equipping our children to pursue any academic pursuit, gifting or dream, without concern of financial obstacle; or changing the world with our business idea or community service, all while amassing and preserving wealth to transfer to our loved ones. 

Let PCAL Financial Group partner with you to create your legacy.

Dr Meera Pandompatam BSc, MD, DNM®
Ayurvedic Practitioner & Medical Liason

I graduated from McGill University where I earned my medical degree (M.D.). My journey took me to South Africa and South India to work in HIV/AIDS medicine, and also locally across Ontario as a post graduate trainee. I worked with patients with complex conditions, including cancer, rare diseases, unknown diagnoses, and mental health conditions; providing medical guidance and advocacy.

I studied the powerful mind-body healing system, Ayurveda, for 3 years, in Canada and India. I am grateful to Ayurveda in healing my own health issues including palpitations, chronic insomnia, PTSD, depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, and arthritis. My profound healing experiences have inspired me to share this wisdom with everyone.

Striving to heal patients by melding Ayurveda with modern medical expertise, while holding true to the ancient practice, has become my life’s work. I practice in a beautiful clinic, Dhaya Integrative Health, in Pickering, Ontario, focusing on mental health.
