In May 2013, the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR) published a series of report cards, summarizing the approaches of provincial and the federal governments on protecting the rights of migrant workers in the “low-skilled” streams of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The objective of the project is to raise awareness and provide a tool to advocate for the protection of migrant workers’ rights federally and in each province.
In this webinar about the project, Naveen Mehta gave an overview of the national context in which this project took place, outlining the different federal and provincial responsibilities towards Temporary Foreign Workers. Marisa Berry Méndez discussed the research behind the report cards, and ways to use this tool.
