Francophone Immigrant Women


AJFAS organizes activities especially for Francophone immigrant women who live in Alberta so as to promote their physical and mental health, as well as their social and professional well-being.

 

The goals are the following:

  • Promote the well-being of Francophone immigrant women and their children through social development programs - hence our name, Alliance Jeunesse-Famille (literally ‘’Youth-Family Alliance’’);
  • Promote social justice and equality for women;
  • Establish some relationships with other organizations that have the same mission, ie solve the problems that women of ethnocultural background have to face;
  • Identify the challenges that Francophone immigrant women have to face when trying to integrate the Albertan society;
  • Help Francophone women of ethno-cultural background with access to information and education;
  • Help Francophone immigrant women who live in Alberta identify problems that can impact their life;
  • Fight discrimination and violence against women in general.
