Group Name: Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services – Multicultural Women’s Wellness Program
Description: Much like the rich fabric that is Canadian culture, our Polycultural family reflects the cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity of the communities we serve. We are dedicated to maintaining an open, inclusive and welcoming environment for all. Currently, we serve clients in over 40 different languages in our six locations across the GTA. Polycultural supports a holistic approach to serving the needs of our community by providing a range of programs including newcomer orientation, education, language, employment and family support services.
Weekly support group sessions are provided for Russian speaking women. This program is delivered in partnership with Canadian Mental Health Association. The goal of the Multicultural Women Wellness Program is to promote the well-being of women who are socially isolated, experiencing cultural and linguistic barriers, and/or women who may be at risk of mental health problems due to difficult life circumstances. It is a safe place where women can meet, make friends, network, learn, remain active and have fun. For many this weekly gatherings are the only place they can meet others and avoid isolation. *** Please call ahead before attending. No fees or registration required.
