SWAN is one of only two organizations in Canada providing culturally-specialized supports and advocacy to im/migrant women engaged in indoor sex work. The diverse voices and ongoing resilience of these communities of women fuel SWAN's mission to change the social and political narratives that racialize, misdefine, exclude and otherwise harm them.

SWAN can:

  • provide information and referrals to health, legal, immigration, housing and social services
  • accompany and provide advocacy in appointments
  • translate during appointments (Cantonese and Mandarin)
  • case co-ordination and crisis management
  • provide emotional support
