CIWA: Programs for Newcomers

CIWA serves clients representing over 140 countries and 135 languages. They come to Calgary with different levels of English abilities and educational and professional experiences. About 45% of the immigrant women they serve hold a Bachelor’s degree, college/trade certificate or higher and professional work experience from their home county, while over 30% of women have less than 12 years of education.

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.
