‘Access without fear’


The Access without Fear policy aims to reassure people with no immigration status that they can access police services without fear they may be reported and ultimately detained, or deported. On the other hand, the sanctuary city movement is aimed at limiting the local enforcement of federal immigration law. But how does it all work in practical?

In this webinar, we explore three cities, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, through their own Access without Fear policy and how these policies are implemented in reality.

Resource person:

  • Baldwin Wong, City of Vancouver
  • Saleem Spindari, MOSAIC
  • Loly Rico, FCJ Refugee centre
  • Jill Hanley, Centre des travailleurs immigrants


The webinar lasts 90 minutes
