International Women's Day Event at Markham South Welcome Centre

Description: The Centre for Immigrant and Community Services held a celebration for International Women’s Day at its Markham South Welcome Centre location at 7220 Kennedy Road, Unit 8. Over the past eight years, thousands of newcomer women have attended and benefitted from the newcomer women support programs offered at Welcome Centres and CICS’ Immigrant Women Resource Centre. Many of them then took the initiative to give back and contribute to the community. In recognition of those efforts, the theme of the centre's 2019 International Women’s Day celebration was “Women Empowering Women”. The event recognized outstanding immigrant women and their impact on the community through volunteerism and leadership. In addition, those interested in becoming a volunteer learned about volunteer opportunities within the Centre for Immigrant and Community Services. The Markham Small Business Centre and several newcomer women entrepreneurs also attended hosting information booths.
