Rebuilding Lives: Stories of Immigrant Women in Edmonton – May 2012 at NorQuest College

Prior to the first Daughters Day event in September, 2012, CCS had two special events in the spring of the year to begin to lay the foundation for its signature event. As part of the groundwork, the first community engagement was held at a coffee house – The Carrot – that featured the talents and sharing of Indigenous women. The second such session was organized at NorQuest College with a focus on the experiences of newcomer women.


Here are some videos and pictures from the evening at NorQuest College
