Supporting Farsi-speaking women and their families since 1989!

IWOO’s mandate is to empower women through programs and supports that impact the world’s equity and diversity while providing opportunities for women, and helping them improve the lives of their families and community.

Who we are

IWOO was initially created as an association of volunteer women dedicated to improving the lives of Iranian women and their families in Canada. 

In 2009, IWOO adopted a new vision and elected a Board of Directors, committed to a strategic direction that would be current, transparent, and reflective.

We now help immigrant community members, alongside Iranian-Canadians, to successfully integrate into Canadian society by achieving economic, social, and political equality while maintaining their heritage and cultural values.

What we offer

We provide a range of support services and programs to help you start, develop, and grow in Canada.

Upcoming events

We host virtual and in-person events and workshops throughout the year, along with our partners around Ontario.

Our Funders

Canadian Women & Sport’s Spotlight Grant is part of the Community Sport for All initiative. This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada. 

La subvention Focus du Femmes et Sport au Canada fait partie de l’initiative Le sport communautaire pour tous. Ce projet a pu être mis sur pied en partie grâce au soutien du gouvernement du Canada.
