Special Mother’s Day Celebration

Published on May 13, 2018


We, the migrant caregivers who come to Canada to take care of the country’s children, elders, and people with disabilities, deserve to be cared for. We deserve to come to Canada with our families and permanent resident status. We do vital work that allows this society to function.

This Mother’s Day, we are inviting all current and former live-in and live-out caregivers, and those who want to show us appreciation, to a celebration at Yonge-Dundas Square. 

Caregivers: come ready to get spoiled, to meet with other caregivers, learn about what the federal government is doing, and get support. We will have surprise performances, gifts, opportunities for learning, snacks and beverages, and a lot of fun!

Friends/allies: bring a token of appreciation for a caregiver to show that you value caregiving work. Get in touch with the organizers to see how else you can contribute [email protected].

If you are a caregiver and you would like to get involved in advance, please contact us at [email protected] or at 647-782-6633.

This event is co-hosted by Caregivers Action Centre (CAC) and Caregiver Connections Education and Support Organization (CCESO).

This Mother’s Day Celebration is part of a National Day of Action, where caregivers will be gathering together in cities across the country. The National Day of Action is co-organized by the Association for the Rights of Household Workers (Montreal), Caregivers Action Centre (Toronto), CCESO (Toronto), Filipino Canadian Advocacy Network, Filipino Workers Network BC, GABRIELA Ontario, Migrante Alberta, Migrante BC, Migrant Workers Centre (Vancouver, formerly West Coast Domestic Workers Association), Vancouver Committee for Domestic Workers’ and Caregivers’ Rights (CDWCR), and Victoria Filipino Canadian Association.
