  Settlement for newcomers
  Working Women is a charitable organization that provides a variety of programs and services, which help immigrant women adjust to living in Toronto. When asked what sets us apart from other charities in the sector, we respond: Working Women is unique in two very distinct ways- our enterprising spirit and our approach with clients.

We see possibilities and take action.
We see the person behind the number.

Anyone who comes to one of our locations for settlement services (eg., language instruction or housing, or job training) Working Women staff make a point of learning about each woman’s whole life: What other skills do they have besides their formal training? Have they made connections with people outside of their family? Are their children doing well in school? What are their recreational interests?

By understanding the individual as a whole, we encourage each immigrant woman to participate in a variety of programs thereby ending their isolation and dependency. This in turn, allows the women to not only help themselves and their families but also to contribute to their community.

This holistic and humane approach adopted by our staff and volunteers is what makes Working Women feel like a trusted friend, and in many cases, a lifeline for the thousands of immigrant women that visit our centres.
