Newcomer women in Canada often face loneliness, struggling to form social networks

Loneliness has become prevalent, impacting 45.9% of Canadians. Newcomer women in Canada face challenges in forming social networks, affecting their employment, earnings, and health. The ideal network size varies per individual, but immigrant women often have smaller networks. Those who have been in Canada for six or more years, are married, unemployed, or arrived at ages 15-24 face particular challenges. However, Black women, refugees, or those not speaking an official language are at the highest risk. The data shows significant employment, education, and income gaps between immigrant men and women due to gender roles and inequalities.
