What We Do
Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) supports immigrant and refugee women and children to become active participants in Canadian society.
We offer programs and services that help women meet their basic needs, improve their English, gain knowledge and skills needed to thrive, and guide them to become leaders in the community.
We tailor our programs to empower immigrant and refugee women and children: English and food programs, parenting workshops, and education bursaries.
We offer leadership development, advocacy training, and personal growth opportunities for immigrant and refugee women to succeed in Canada.
We involve immigrant and refugee women in the design and implementation of programs to create meaningful and lasting change.
We provide customized workshops, webinars, and resource guides on trauma-informed practice in settlement and social service organizations.
“It helped me to know myself better and feel more sure about my adaptability to life here. I got inspired about my future from the guest speaker Anna, a social worker, when she said, ‘Be anchored here’..”– Parenting program participant
