Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association
CIWA provides women with the knowledge and supports to address the settlement challenges they face related to employment, community engagement, access to resources, English communication, cross cultural parenting, role reversal, etc. They also offer services to support senior immigrant women and immigrant girls as their settlement experience is unique due to their age and level of independence, physical health and surroundings. Both seniors and youth face challenges related to balancing societal expectations with cultural and familial expectations.
They offer wide range of programs and services in areas related to settlement, language, employment and family supports to address the diverse needs of immigrant and refugee women and their families. All clients have access to childcare and first language support.
