What to know about the Newcomer Women Pilot Program of Canada?

The Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot Program was launched in 2018. It was known as the Visible Minority Newcomer Women at Work Program. The aim of the program is to help women arriving in Canada find employment.

The program was started to boost employment and career progress for foreign national women. It facilitates women to find employment so that they can be financially independent. The program also promotes gender equality.

The 10 projects aim to raise awareness for gender sensitivity and settlement. It plans to raise awareness, facilitate more action, and collaboration between multiple sectors. The funds will also help in capacity building in primary settlement sector workers who address gender-based violence situations.

Canada also processes another project that invites newcomer women with technical and IT skills to assist them in acquiring the required credentials to search for employment in Canada successfully.

Other projects supporting women in Canada

In 2019-2020, over 2,500 candidates participated in the activities of the Pilot Program. Most of the participants belonged to the core working age, that is, in the ages of 25- 54, and immigrants who have stayed in Canada for less than 5 years.

The projects are managed by independent organizations in Canada, which aim to offer newcomer women who have the required proficiency in the official languages, introduce them to Canadian employers, and teach them other required skills that will help them in finding employment.

IRCC believes knowledge, training, and resources they receive facilitate them to address the needs of gender-based violence victims more effectively. The project will be assessed over the coming 4 years to formulate common knowledge concerning gender-based violence in the settlement sector. It will also develop programs to educate foreign nationals on the facilities and resources offered to them in smaller cities as well as rural areas.
