Canadian government is committed to ensuring equal participation of all women and girls, in Canada’s economic growth and development. This is the reason that IRCC is making things smooth and hassle free for racialized newcomer women to find an employment by offering the support and services they require to thrive and be successful.

Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot

As part of Canada’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, MP for Halifax West, Lena Diab, announced federal government’s determination to renew up to $5.8 million in funding till year 2025 for ten projects supported under the RNWP (Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot). This declaration came on behalf of the Canadian immigration minister Sean Fraser, and is in addition to the $15 million over two years allocated in Budget 2021 to extend support for this pilot.

Speaking about the decision, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser said, “Racialized newcomer women face significant challenges in entering the workforce. This isn’t just about getting women jobs, it’s also about providing a sense of dignity and belonging. This support is integrated within the work the Government of Canada is doing to prevent and end gender-based violence by ensuring that gender equality is supported across all sectors. Canada’s gender equality is for all women.”
