Purpose: The aim of this project is to establish a unit of French speaking mobile resource persons trained in the various areas of economic development and social services. The trainers will travel to different locations each month throughout Francophone communities in urban and rural areas to conduct various workshops on economic development for women and hold private consultations, as required. Community visits will also provide an opportunity to identify unreported needs (e.g. spousal abuse, special needs of immigrant women) and to form a core of resource persons drawing on the expertise of senior women to assist younger ones. This innovative project will also establish a unit of resource persons available five days per week to respond to requests gathered during community visits and a toll free telephone line where women can direct their questions.
Comments: Multi-year project of 3 years (2008-2010).
