Below you will find the report based on a survey conducted among the members of AWSC. The report highlights newcomers' experience in Canada, including barriers that immigrant and refugee women experience in their resettlement.
Azerbaijani Women’s Support Centre (AWSC) conducted a general survey regarding back to school during COVID-19. The survey questions were general but comprehensive enough to generate responses in order to understand the concern and anxiety of parents regarding planning on back to school during COVID-19.
In total, 52 respondents responded to the survey. 96.15% of respondents were 18 years of age and older and residents of Ontario. Among the participants, 40 (76.92%) responded that their child/children will go back to class in the fall, and 12 (23.08%) responded that they will not send their kid back to school. 36 (69.23%) of participants responded that they think their school has adequate safety measures to ensure a safe environment for children. Only 16 (30.77%) responded to the opposite. For more please see the file below.
Ever since the military attack of Armenian military forces against Azerbaijan on July 12, 2020, the numerous documented hate crime attacks against individuals of the Azerbaijani ethnicity, as well as their communities, have taken place in Los Angeles, Brussels, Toronto, London, Moscow, etc. The police departments of some of the aforementioned cities have launched hate crime investigations against the attackers of Armenian origin for willfully causing physical, psychological and emotional harm. Unfortunately, these hate crimes have caused severe safety concerns in Azerbaijani communities across the world.
Therefore, AWSC conducted this survey to find out how these hate crimes and incidents affect individuals of the Azerbaijani community. This survey consisted of two parts. Firstly, we asked the individuals to respond to questions regarding demographic information, such as their age, gender and their status in Canada. The second part consisted of direct questions regarding the impact of hate crimes and incidents. Overall, 131 (95.62%) adults aged 18 and above and 6 (4.38%) below the age of 18, participated in the survey. 125 (89.83%) of these participants live in Canada and 14 (10.07%), are not Canadian residents.

Malheureusement, ces crimes haineux ont causé de graves problèmes de sécurité dans les communautés Azerbaïdjanaises dans le monde entier.
