Implementation Report

This is the first report looking at the implementation phase, from October 2019 to September 2020, of the Career Pathways for Visible Minority Newcomer Women (CPVMNW) Pilot Project when the programs had been in operation for about one year. More specifically, we documented the 11 interventions based of the four employment models as implemented by the eight service provider organizations. The report also explores challenges they faced in implementing the models, summarizes the characteristics of the women who have participated in the programs to date, and describe what has worked well, challenges, and lessons learned to date. It also presents some early thoughts on how the interventions can be improved from the perspectives of the women who participated in the interventions and delivery staff. Since the pilot is still in progress, the findings are preliminary; it sets the stage for the final outcomes and impacts evaluation report included in this pilot.
