Welcome to the IWS website!
IWS is a non-profit, grassroots equality-seeking women’s organization dedicated to assisting immigrant and refugee women and their families, residing in Saskatoon and area, through free programs and services designed to support their settlement and integration into their community.
IWS works both independently and in partnership with other community based organizations, both immigrant and mainstream serving agencies, private and government organizations.
The organization’s unique position as the voice of immigrant and refugee women in the Saskatoon community is rooted in the founding principles on which the organization was established namely: equality, empowerment, empathy, equity, diversity, respect, tolerance and inclusiveness. Over the years, these principles have continued to define the organization’s methods of program development and delivery strategies which in turn have allowed for flexibility in the organization’s response to the unique needs of the clients.
