What We're Doing Now

Let’s share more stories. Together.

The Shoe Project was launched in Toronto in 2011. Since then, we have added chapters to Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Edmonton, Canmore, Windsor, Brampton (coming soon), and Winnipeg (coming soon), and are now a registered charity. We are committed to providing a truly national platform for the voices of immigrant and refugee women.
