MWONL is a culturally diverse, provincial-based non-profit organization that was formed in 1982. Our uniqueness is based on its gender specific mandate. The organization delivers programs and services to immigrant and newcomer women and their families in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
We take into consideration their social, economic and cultural equality and allow them to fully participate. Our organization focuses on the unique concerns and needs of newcomer, immigrant and refugee women and their families, and recognizes and responds accordingly.
We developed innovative programs, while establishing and maintaining meaningful partnerships with various organizations.
