Mission

The Afghan Women’s Centre of Montreal (AWCM) empowers socially isolated immigrant women within Canadian society by designing and implementing programs tailored to their specific needs.  Through self-development workshops and collaborative projects, the AWCM fosters collective action and community-building among immigrant women.
 

The AWCM recognizes and addresses the distinct and compounded intertwined challenges experienced by racialized newcomer and migrant women. The AWCM acknowledges the challenges of newly arrived women face when establishing in a new country such as language barriers, employment opportunities, professional development, childcare accessibility, and intense feelings of isolation. Understanding the vulnerability of seniors, the AWCM offers intergenerational activities to promote mentorship development.​

These resources, along with the compassionate team at AWCM, create a safe space for women falling into minority groups. Intersectionality is at the core of advocacy efforts at the AWCM. 

 

Improving our members’ quality of life is at the core of the AWCM’s mission. That is why we take pride in providing support to our members and acting as a point of reference to various resources.

The Afghan Women’s Centre of Montreal empowers and advocates for socially isolated immigrant women within Canadian society by designing and implementing programs tailored to their specific needs.
