1120 - 20th Street West

This full-day meeting will be a skill-share and strategy session for migrant workers and people in diverse sectors across Canada that work with and/or advocate for the rights of migrant workers.

The objectives of this meeting are:

  • To bring together workers and advocates from across the country to share experiences, exchange ideas and develop partnerships
  • To bring ideas and information on organizing for migrant worker rights to Saskatchewan, with the goal of supporting a nascent migrant worker rights movement locally
  • To create a space where workers and advocates from different sectors and provinces can strategize around advancing the campaign for migrant worker rights in the context of the new federal government

“Migrant workers” describes the workers in the low-skill/low-wage categories of Canada’s temporary labour migration programs, who have limited or no access to permanent residence (with the exception of participants in the Caregiver Program, and those able to access Provincial Nominee Programs): those participating in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program.
