We're here, 

we help

Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Centre is committed to supporting Asian and South Asian women, children, youth and their families in taking greater control of their lives. Our main focus is to provide culturally appropriate and linguistically specific settlement and counseling support services with the use of community- determined strategies, that are developed and delivered by women.

Over the years, RIWC has expanded its services to support other minority groups who are marginalized by poverty, sexual orientation, ageism, etc., and isolated, having limited resources and adequate access to services. RIWC provides a broad range of services essential to the integration of refugee communities. We also assist under-served groups such as youth, seniors, 2SLGBTQ+, refugees and other vulnerable women who are isolated and have limited access to services.


Currently, RIWC offers services in 19 languages. Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, English, Farsi, French, Gujarati, Hunan, Hindi, Katchi, Mandarin, Marathi, Punjabi, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil, Tagalog, Turkish and Urdu are some of the languages you may hear at RIWC.
