Working Group on Immigration and Settlement
Key campaigns are standing issues that the working group is active on. As the working group's activities are dynamic and member-driven, these issues sometimes change. As with the rest of the CCR, I&S addresses issues from a social justice perspective, and is committed to an anti-oppression approach.
The Immigration and Settlement Working Group partners with the Youth Network, which emerged from the Working Group and is now a distinct body within the CCR.
Some of the Working Group's key campaigns are:
- Access to services
- Migrant workers
- Violence against women
- Family reunification
- Labour market access
- Racialisation of poverty
Co-chairs Craig Mackie and Yasmine Dossal
The Working Group is supported by a steering committee composed of representatives of member organizations from across the country. If you are interested in joining the steering committee, contact Marisa: firstname.lastname@example.org.
