The School of Workforce Skills Development is lending its support to a new project that has received Government of Canada funding.

The Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Canada's Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, announced last Wednesday the Working Women Community Centre is receiving $187,422 for its 24-month project to address the barriers faced by foreign-trained professionals, including newcomer mothers.

The organization will work with the College and employment partners to develop a strategy to reduce systemic barriers experienced by immigrant women in their careers.

The recommendations and best practices that result from the project will be shared with other service providers and programs across the country.
