About Us

Who we are

SOFIFRAN est un organisme communautaire sans but lucratif, créé en 2007 par des femmes immigrantes francophones – vivant dans la région du Niagara et originaires de diverses parties du monde. L’organisme a pour but d’accompagner les femmes et leurs familles dans leur processus d’intégration au Niagara en offrant des services dans le domaine social, économique, éducatif et culturel.
Avec l’expérience, le recul et la pratique de terrain, les membres de SOFIFRAN comprennent l’importance, la nécessité et l’impact de leurs actions sur l’immigration locale. Elles ciblent toujours plus de soutien de la part des communautés, des partenaires et des institutions.
