Description

Founded in 1990, AWO provides settlement services to all newcomers, with a special focus on women, their families, refugees and people who have experienced war and persecution. Our Mission is to improve newcomers' quality of life and to promote their social and economic inclusion in order to enable them to become contributing members of society and to live in dignity. During the 2013-2014 period, AWO welcomed newcomers from countries all around the world including: Afghanistan, Iran, Uzbekistan, Syria, Iraq, Tajikistan, Turkey, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, as well as Eastern European and African countries. During this time, AWO served over 19,000 clients in the first stages of their settlement process. These first steps taken by newcomers, finding a home, employment, learning English, and learning about the Canadian legal system and health care are all crucial to ensuring that each newcomer has a foundation for building a healthy life in Canada.
