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 February, we would like to sincerely thank Shaw. Shaw is a leading Canadian telecommunications company focused on connecting its customers to the world through a best-in-class, seamless connectivity experience. Their customers are at the forefront of everything they do, and they strive to provide superior technology and an exceptional customer experience.

Shaw has been a partner with CIWA since 2016. They have provided work placements, employment opportunities, volunteered as guest speakers at graduation ceremonies, and attended networking breakfasts. To date, they have assisted with more than 40 CIWA clients.

Shaw is proud to be one of CIWA’s longer-term valued business partners. Their goal is to provide valuable work and practicum experience to CIWA clients while respecting their abilities and talents. When we ask clients about working at Shaw, they say they appreciate the friendly and supportive environment in addition to the learning and growth opportunities available to further their skills.

Thank you Shaw, for supporting the economic security of immigrant and refugee women in Calgary!
