Mount Royal Residence

CIWA works with over 150 business partners each and every year, and these partners make a significant impact in our community – by volunteering their time, their knowledge and insights, their space, or offering employment to newcomers in Calgary. For the month of November, we would like to sincerely thank Mount Royal Residence.

Mount Royal Residence offers two residence complexes designed for independent student living. Combined, they accommodate about 1,000 students. Mount Royal’s residences are available in either apartment or townhouse units that are only a few minutes’ walk away from a wide range of Mount Royal facilities and services. All residents have private, lockable bedrooms and share living rooms and kitchens with their unit mates.

Mount Royal Residence has been working with CIWA since 2019, providing employment to graduates of CIWA’s Modular Training Program. To date, they have offered employment opportunities to 22 women.

CIWA is grateful for Mount Royal Residence’s trust in our programs, staff, and clients. Thank you, Mount Royal Residence, for supporting the economic security of immigrant and refugee women in Calgary, and for making our community stronger!
