economicabuse womanactreportcover"The Senior Immigrant Women at Risk of Economic Abuse project undertook community engagement and research to better understand the unique experiences of economic abuse among senior immigrant women.

Senior immigrant women occupy intersecting identities of gender, age and immigration. Each of these have been known to impact experiences of gender-based violence and help seeking. Furthermore, these intersections can create specific risk factors related to economic abuse.

The project undertook research to highlight the unique experiences and risk factors and help build capacity of community agencies to identify and respond to economic abuse among senior women. The project completed community consultations, a literature review and community-based research. The first part of this report explores the existing research on economic abuse among senior immigrant women. The second part of this report contains findings from community-based research undertaken with service providers and senior immigrant women with lived experience of economic abuse."
