Workers from different sectors of the economy will speak on their experience of organizing to uphold the rights of migrant workers and the difficulties they face. Workers from different sectors will speak themselves from health care to seniors care, about how they arrived in Canada and on the conditions of their lives and work. Information will also be provided about the conditions faced by internal migrants forced to leave their homes to find work in the mines, on construction sites, in the tar sands, amongst other places
It is thanks to the workers who speak out and organize for the affirmation of the rights of all that the truth of what happens in Canada becomes known and together we can advance the fight for the rights of all.
We are an alliance of migrant workers and allies fighting for justice, dignity, protection and status for migrant workers.
