Women for Justice Foundation’s communications and outreach team, the researchers at Al-Qazzaz Foundation for Education & Development (QED) alongside with HMC Connection team are pleased to announce that we are in the final phase of preparation to conduct the research, which includes the creation of forms, questionnaires, organizaing interviews, and focus groups, alongside creating the platform in which the project will be presented on.

The aim of this study is to record the experiences of Arabic-speaking women in the Halton Region in Ontario. Our goal is to capture the lived experiences of Arabic-speaking women as they go about their daily lives in a variety of settings. The participants will be questioned regarding their experiences at home, in learning environments, at work, in places of worship, and when utilizing different services. Additionally, we want to comprehend how COVID-19 has affected people’s ability to obtain these services and how some difficulties have changed throughout the course of the pandemic. The development of programs and policy proposals can be based on this information to address the different issues that Arabic-speaking women in Canada are facing.
