We are conducting a national survey as part of the 5-year research project focusing on racialized newcomer women in Canada and the challenges they face entering the Canadian workforce, funded by the IRCC's Settlement Program. To show our appreciation of your time, we will be offering each participant a $50 Walmart Gift Card for completing the survey.

To be eligible to participate, you must

  • have obtained permanent resident status in Canada within the past 10 years through an economic immigration pathway
  • be within the age range of 18-65 years old,
  • self-identify as a woman,
  • self-identify as racialized (or a visible minority),
  • and live in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, or Edmonton 

The survey can be completed online at your leisure and should take less than 1 hour to complete.

If you are interested in learning more about the study and what your participation would involve, please read the Racialized Immigrant Women National Survey Information Letter .
