International Women for International Women's Day!

The experiences of immigrant women in Canada are as varied as the women themselves.
Whether they encounter a land of opportunity - or an obstacle course - depends on many things, including what they've left behind.

But one thing is clear - if the women are happy and engaged, the whole family is more likely to want to stay in a community.

Maritime Magazine marks International Women's Day with stories from women who've come to this region.

The CBC's Lisa Roberts brings us their stories.
