Our Partners

PIRS participants at a community event

We value working collaboratively with a community of people and partners who have diverse perspectives and backgrounds. As a community-based agency, our programs operate out of the neighbourhoods where immigrant and refugee women live. This allows us to meet women where they are, serving those who are most marginalized. This operational model is made possible through the support of our generous community partners. 

PIRS partnerships allow us to extend our mission and multiply our impact. We are grateful to our partners for facilitating our work, welcoming our participants, and creating networks and community connections for newcomer women.

In 2021-2022, partners provided $244,098 worth of in-kind contributions. On behalf of PIRS and the women we serve, we thank all of our partners and collaborators for their continuous financial and in-kind support.
