Featuring the people behind CIWA’s governance: Meet Nola Heale, CIWA’s Board Vice Chair and Treasurer, and more.
Nola Heale joined CIWA as a non-director member of the finance committee in 2020. Through her role, she feels inspired to support the vast number of services and opportunities CIWA offers to ease women’s settlement journey.
When Nola immigrated to Canada with her husband and two small children, she did not know about CIWA and struggled on her own. She experienced the difficulty in becoming re-established, building a network, finding work, and just succeeding in a beautiful new country.
Nola is now a qualified Chartered Accountant and Chartered Professional Accountant in four different countries, with a large part of her career focused on helping companies increase their success. She shares that challenges that come with relocating internationally and starting from scratch can be treated as opportunities to overcome hurdles and succeed for the benefit of their family.
Thank you, Nola, for your commitment to help CIWA empower immigrant women and enrich Canadian society.
