Education & Research

In 2021, CAWI launched a Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) Campaign. Ever since, the SRH Campaign team has taken on various events and initiatives, such as a community-based research project, seminars, panel discussions, and the development of a curriculum & toolkit.

These initiatives have been funded by RPIRG, Oxfam Canada, SACOMSS, and Sasktel.

Our Campaign

1. Community-Based Research Project

  • In 2021, the Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) Campaign team at CAWI secured a small fund from the Regina Public Interest Research Group to conduct a community-based research project on the experiences of immigrant women and girls with the Canadian SRH curriculums. The team hoped to use the findings of the study to develop a curriculum and toolkit that would bridge the gap between SRH education for the general population and SRH education for the immigrant population.

2. Online Seminars and Panel Discussions

  • The campaign team hosted various panel discussions and seminars to address diverse topics in SRH for immigrant populations. Our most recent is the "Inclusive and Culturally-Adapted Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE): Current Evidence and Practices", including Andrea Rodriguez (Action Canada), Dr. Salima Meherali (University of Alberta), and Somiya Tabbasum (Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan). 

3. Evidence-Based Workshops 

  • As a part of this campaign, we hosted two workshops: Navigating Relationships and The Basics of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH).

4. Curriculum and Toolkit

  • Relying on the findings of our focus group discussions as well as community consultations, an evidence-based curriculum and toolkit were created. The toolkit is to be launched on February 13, 2023.
