The MCWH Multilingual Library and Resource Collections are tailored to and centred on the health and wellbeing of immigrant and refugee women.

Health professionals, community workers, students, businesses and, most importantly, immigrant and refugee women benefit from accessing our collections and resources every day.

MCWH provides many ways to access the information and resources most relevant to you:

MCWH Fact Sheets

MCWH Fact Sheets are another way that we ensure the immigrant and refugee women have the information they need to make informed decisions about their health, wellbeing and their lives. We have always responded to information gaps by creating our own resources, providing translations of available material, and partnering with others looking to create resources for immigrant and refugee women.
