The Colour Factor

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 June, we would like to sincerely thank The Colour Factor. The Colour Factor is a non-profit mental health organization for black, indigenous & people of colour that reclaims wellness through traditional healing practices and helps bridge the gap in the mental health care system.

The Color Factor has been working with CIWA for a year, hosting clients from the Career Services for Foreign Trained Professionals Program. The Color Factor selected their candidate based on the need to empower and train, rather than choosing the best from the three candidates that they interviewed.

“As a proudly led BIPoC organization, we feel that it is our responsibility to empower and adapt to the guests we choose to work with and not the other way around.”

Thank you, The Color Factor, for supporting the economic security of immigrant and refugee women in Calgary, and for making our community stronger!
