New Canadians

Shoe Project empowers new Canadian women to tell their stories

Ten women will share their stories of immigration and adaptation to Canada through the focus of a pair of shoes in the Feb. 26 presentation “Taking New Steps.”
For 10 weeks, 10 women from across the globe met at the Leddy Library for their weekly Shoe Project workshop, a program designed to help newcomer women improve their language and communication skills through writing and public speaking. These women are now preparing to take the stage for the official Shoe Project performance.
The program began with a 10-week writing seminar facilitated by Leddy librarian and award-winning writer Heidi Jacobs.
