New Educational Film on Immigrant Health Care Aides

By: Naomi Lightman

June 17, 2021

This short educational film introduces Dr. Naomi Lightman’s research on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on immigrant women health care aide’s (HCAs) working in long-term care in Calgary, Canada. The research was done in collaboration with the Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association (CIWA), a non-profit settlement agency that focuses on the unique concerns and needs of immigrant and refugee women. The film features interviews with Lightman, Marie-Solange Eveh B. of CIWA, and two anonymous immigrant women HCAs. The HCAs share details of their experience working in long-term care over the past year — reusing personal protective equipment, long hours, inadequate treatment of patients, and more.
