Immigrant women in Alberta

Coun. Loanna Gulka recently attended the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association launch and she feels there is potential for more health professionals in the province.

The organization has started an economic strategy with a three-year funding commitment from the federal government.

Many of the women in the organization spoke at the launch.

“It was an eye-opener to me. We have women in central Alberta that are registered nurses, dentists, doctors and they’re working as child care providers and janitors because they can’t get certified,” she explained.

The program has just begun and Gulka looks forward to the outcome of the strategy.
