This two-year project looks at the experience of immigrant and refugee women as they settle into their new home. It seeks to increase knowledge about immigrant women’s unique needs, strengths, challenges, and goals within the context of settlement programming. Moreover, it engages stakeholders in developing service delivery models or interventions that better support immigrant women in their goals related to economic, social and/or community participation.
Our activities in this project include:
- Ethnographic Research;
- Learning Labs, Learning Fairs, and Learning Exchanges;
- A Design Phase;
- The formulation of an Immigrant Women Advisory Group; and,
- A Pilot Project.
