Ottawa is investing money to address barriers for racialized newcomer women

On December 9, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced an investment of up to $5.8 million until 2025 to support racialized newcomer women. As part of Canada’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, the funding will be used for ten projects funded under the Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot and contribute to equal participation of all women. The Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot has provided support to 21 projects, and some of them have already been completed. Statistics from January to June 2021 demonstrate a huge unemployment gap between newly immigrant female individuals and Canadian-born females (15.2% vs 8%). However, the pandemic only worsened existing issues racialized newcomer women faced regarding labour market participation.
