On July 25, almost 1000 migrant care workers, farmworkers, migrant students, undocumented people, refugees and supporters united and marched on the streets of Ottawa to demand full and permanent immigration status for all. See below for photos of this historic moment!
Watch this Global TV coverage where migrants bravely speak about why we need status now!
We were also featured in the CBC News, Canadian Press, Capitol Current, Radio Canada, Journal de Montréal, Le Droit, La Presse, TVA Nouvelles, and Ming Pao.
We went to Ottawa to make it loud and clear for Prime Minister Trudeau that we want our rights NOW! Permanent immigration status means that we have access to equal rights like everyone else. It means we can leave our employers if being abused or are able to study in school. It also means we can reunite with our families!
We know that when migrant care workers come together, we have the power to make change. And with the federal election around the corner, we must be ready to raise our voices and demand that the government do more. Sign this petition to make sure your voice is heard!
