Over 150 stakeholders were engaged across the province over consultations, workshops, trainings and meetings to promote community-coordinated responses to immigrant women experiencing D/IPV. Improved communication, collaboration and cross-sector learnings have led to more cohesive and aligned supports for newcomer women, strong recommendations for improving services, and cross-sector trainings and referral systems in Moncton and Saint John.
The project resulted in:
- Needs Assessment Report, interviewing and conducting focus group discussions with over 100 individuals including immigrant women, service providers and researchers.
- The publication of the Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence Against Immigrant Women in New Brunswick
- Provincial Reference Guide and Resource Guide.
- The creation of and continued support for the Immigrant Women’s Association of New Brunswick
- The creation of a Moncton Steering Group on Immigrant Women Victims of D/IPV
- 2 workshops held with over 100 stakeholders in Saint John and Moncton to promote community-coordinated responses to immigrant women experiencing D/IPV.
- Established an NBMC representative on the New Brunswick Women’s Council.
