In Canada 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence & 1 woman is killed every 6 days by her partner. Immigrant-specific factors exacerbate the already vulnerable position for newcomer women, such as limited language skills, isolation from family & community, cultural inhibitors & uncertain legal status. Help Stop the Violence. Donate to CFN's Vulnerable Population Services during Family Violence Prevention Month.
Settlement services at the Centre for Newcomers help address the needs of immigrants and refugees to make a successful transition to their new home in Calgary.
