Workout For Women’s Day
We are excited that Workout for Women’s Day 2023 has chosen PIRS as one of the four selected charities for their 5th year anniversary campaign! Workout for Women’s Day is a coming together of local movement studios and instructors around International Women’s Day to offer by donation classes for charities that support girls, women, and other humans who experience gender discrimination.
Responding to Global Crisis
Our community is deeply concerned by the growing humanitarian crisis caused by the invasion of Ukraine. British Columbia is expected to receive approximately 17 to 20 percent of the 106,000 Ukrainians headed to Canada – that is just over 21,000 people – mostly women and children. They have limited access to resources, and exhibit signs of PTSD. They need our help! We have established a Ukraine Crisis Fund, and invite you to join us in solidarity with those who have been displaced due to the invasion of Ukraine. Join us as we help Ukrainian women and children find community in Canada.
The Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) is a non-profit organization that has been in existence since 1975, providing unique and essential programming for newcomer women and their children. We are more than just an immigrant and refugee services agency. We are a supportive community dedicated to empowering women to rise out of isolation and integrate into life in Canada.
