Visible minority newcomer women often face significant barriers to finding and keeping good jobs. The Career Pathways for Visible Minority Newcomer Women pilot is an IRCC-funded project that aims to help visible minority newcomer women in their integration in the Canadian labour market. We evaluate the short-term impacts of four models that have been implemented by eight service-provider organizations.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Employment-related impacts of specialized programming for racialized newcomer women
  • Differential employment-related impacts for women with diverse characteristics
  • Use of photovoice by racialized newcomer women
