Settlement Journeys Toward Good Jobs: Short-Term Changes in Outcomes and Program Impacts


In 2018-19, the Government of Canada announced a $31.9 million investment to help racialized
newcomer women secure employment. The Career Pathways for Racialized Newcomer Women Pilot
Project, initially a three-year national pilot which was extended until 2022-23, that tests enhanced
employment programming for newcomer women who identify as racialized, is one of the three funding
streams in this initiative. The Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) has received
funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to design, implement, and evaluate


Prior to its extension, the pilot project involved eight service provider organizations across Canada, implementing 11 interventions based on four service delivery models. The overall goal of each model is to
support racialized newcomer women in their successful integration in the Canadian labour market. The
models differ by their target population (e.g., women with different skill/language levels and different
initial distances from the labour market) as well as by the program activities involved. The models aim to
address some of the common barriers racialized newcomer women face in their search for employment
and in job retention.
