Toronto - A Place to Call Our Own: Empowering Women to Take Action for Affordable Housing

At RIWC, we have joined with eight women-serving organizations from across Toronto to partner in a 36-month initiative to address the alarming number of women living in unsafe or unhealthy accommodations. With funding from the Status of Women Canada, the action plan includes building a safety and inclusion network to support women in their housing, proposing housing policy changes and designing a women’s housing model that works.

Although they are listed as separate services, RIWC follows an integrated model of service where each of its service and program components overlaps. For example, although job search workshops are listed under Settlement and Integration Programs, they can be accessed by clients in other programs as well. Other services include counselling, internships, and community workshops.
