Event description

Description

This training aims to build the capacity of frontline workers to work with non-status, racialized women who have experienced gendered violence. Deepa Mattoo and Sheila Monteiro will provide information from a trauma-informed perspective on issues affecting racialized women who are precarious immigrants in Canada by exploring the relationship between race, gender, and immigration status.

The legal landscape of immigration law in Canada is constantly changing, and service providers need to be equipped with a clear understanding of the law in order to dispel common myths and provide accurate information to their clients.

The training will look at:

  • The benefits women qualify for under different immigration categories

  • A catalogue of gender-based IRPA statute framework and guidelines, as well as an identification of the gaps in the legal framework

  • An overview of the privacy legislation and the requirements of service providers to disclose information regarding non-status women

We will also have community updates, a brief presentation on the new citizenship rules, breakout groups and informal networking opportunities.

We want the workshops and forums to be as financially accessible possible. We ask for folks who can afford to, to donate $5 towards covering the cost of refreshments and room fees. Receipts can be provided. Extra funds are carried forward to future events. Students and people who are non-waged or precariously employed are welcome to attend for free.

Please RSVP by Friday, November 17th as spaces are limited ~ Thank You!

~ Space is fully wheelchair accessible. Please let us know of any accessibility needs so that we can do our best to accommodate them.

RNSWN would like to gratefully acknowledge the Migrant Mothers Project at the University of Toronto and OCASI as partners for this event.
