Migrant and temporary workers

Resolution number
  1. The Canadian government denies seasonal agricultural workers and foreign temporary workers the right to apply for permanent residence status through these programs;
  2. This right is available through the live-in caregiver program;
Therefore be it resolved

That the CCR demand:

  1. Access to secure permanent resident status for these workers and their families.
  2. Improved working and housing conditions for these workers.
  3. That provincial governments enforce the rights guaranteed to migrant workers under provincial employment and human right laws, rather than abdicating this responsibility to foreign governments.
