A proud history of empowering immigrant women, and a future of even greater possibilities...

What We Do...

The Alberta Network of Immigrant Women (ANIW) is adaptive and evolutionary, changing its research and programming focus as needed to remain connected to the interests and needs of women who are building a new life in Canada. Immigrant women are themselves effective and committed community builders, working to develop opportunities for their families, themselves, and their surrounding community.

Our role is to connect and support immigrant women in these efforts. The Network is uniquely positioned to understand their concerns, and to work across various community and government agencies to encourage effective collaboration in delivering programs and services.

For the last 25 years, the Alberta Network of Immigrant Women has connected and empowered immigrant women across the province, leading and supporting initiatives that foster equality, justice, and learning. The Network has shared its innovative research on issues that impact the integration of immigrant women and their families within our society, and has worked effectively with other partners and stakeholders to bring our recommendations to reality.
