This Wednesday, May 11th, the Federal government will begin a review of the Temporary Foreign Workers Program. Now is the time to act for migrant worker rights
As you know, over the last few years we saw a massive increase in racisms and xenophobia with migrant workers being blamed for job loss, low wages, precarious work, and everything else in between. Multiple terrible laws were passed – which forced thousands of people to either unwillingly leave the country or become undocumented. We need comprehensive reforms and for that we need you:
1) Join an event or organize your own during #StatusNow Week of Action for#MigrantWorker rights.
From May 28 to June 5th, we will be organizing actions across the country. Full listings here.
(2) Help spread the word
Sign an e-petition, share facebook memes, distribute flyers, get petition signatures, distribute our backgrounder and FAQs. Lots of materials for you to use and share here.
(3) Meet your MP: The Coalition for Migrant Worker Rights Canada has created all the tools that will make it super easy even if you’ve never done this before. Check it out here.
