SAWIS to attend the 26th Metropolis Canada Conference in Montreal

SAWIS will be attending the 26th Metropolis conference, hosted in Montreal, QB. This conference is a space for interaction, dialogue, and learning among settlement service providers, practitioners, policy makers, researchers and civil society on topics related to migration, integration and inclusion.

SAWIS will be co-presenting with UofT and McMaster to discuss reflections and implications from community-engaged research with Bangladeshi migrants who receive services from South Asian Women’s and Immigrants’ Services (SAWIS). The roundtable aims to discuss structural inequities resulting from migration, labor market discrimination, and gender-based violence, including insights on how SAWIS’s holistic approach to mutual aid, direct service, and advocacy seeks to foster social change for racialized immigrant women in Toronto’s East Danforth neighborhoods.
