About Us


PIRS > About Us > Partners

PIRS recognizes that many immigrant and refugee women live communities that are not easily accessible by transit or would rather accommodate the needs of their families by participating in activities close to their homes. We respond to these barriers by bringing our services to remote neighbourhoods. Aside from making our services inclusive, this allows us to collaborate with our partners.

The PIRS model of integrated, radically de-centred service provision is delivered through a network of community partnerships.
