Economic Abuse in Settlement: Stronger Than You Think Webinar Series

July 9, 2024 @ Online

Identifying and Addressing Economic Abuse with the Director of the Canadian Centre for Women’s Empowerment

Join us for an eye-opening online event where we delve into the topic of economic abuse in the context of the settlement sector. On Tuesday, July 9th, 2024 from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM,  we are inviting the director for The Canadian Centre for Women’s Empowerment, Michaela Mayer, to shed light on this often overlooked form of abuse and provide valuable insights on the first Canadian Economic Abuse Screening Tool (EAST).

The Economic Abuse Screening Tool (EAST) has been developed to assist social service providers, particularly shelter staff, in identifying and addressing instances of economic abuse experienced by their clients. EAST equips these providers with the information and skills necessary to assess the scope and nature of economic abuse, and provides them with a range of resources to help victim-survivors access critical economic resources. We will be discussing its application within the context of the settlement sector.

Our webinar will take place virtually, online on Tuesday, July 9th, 2024. 2:00 pm to 4:00 PM on ZOOM.

About the Stronger Than You Think Webinar Series

The #Strongerthanyouthink Series aims at providing capacity building workshops for service providers, faith-based groups and employers to be better equipped to respond to disclosures of gender-based violence in the newcomer community. While gender-based violence happens to all communities at a similar rate, we recognize that refugee and immigrant women face particular barriers that make it more difficult for them to get support. It is our aim that this webinar series update the sector on the changing landscape and better equip attendants on how to deal with disclosures of gender-based violence for newcomer communities.


Women Against Violence is an Action Group of the Toronto West Local Immigration Partnership (TWLIP) that aims to promote the message that gender-based violence is everyone’s issue to address. The Action Group supports local community organizations in enhancing knowledge and building capacity to address this issue
