The Supporting Senior Immigrant Women at Risk of Financial Abuse project will conduct research and build capacity of community agencies and financial institutions in Toronto to respond to the needs of senior immigrant women.
Senior immigrant women face unique barriers to accessing support and services as well as added and complex barriers to economic security. This project will seek to understand the nature of economic abuse among senior immigrant women and develop recommendations for improved practice and response.
The project will co-create community-based research with senior immigrant women in Toronto. Research will be conducted with survivors of economic abuse and community agencies. The research will be mobilized to raise awareness, build capacity of agencies and remove barriers faced by survivors of economic abuse.
The project is funded by the Government of Canada under the New Horizons for Seniors Program.
