iSisters supports the most vulnerable women in our society, including:
- newcomers to Canada
- indigenous women
- those fleeing family violence
- criminalized women
- young mothers working to complete their high school education
- women with disabilities
Our programs are designed for disadvantaged women facing significant barriers – women who have often been stereotyped and judged throughout their lives. At iSisters, our team recognizes the importance of ensuring dignity, respect and inclusion. As a result, we provide a non-judgement environment for all learners. We offer women a familiar space to learn where they feel safe and included – often through a community organization that they’re already connected with for other services.
iSisters classrooms are a regular meeting place for women with shared experiences to safely build connections and networks of support. When a woman leaves iSisters with improved digital skills, greater self-confidence and a positive interpersonal experience, we’ve accomplished our goal!
