CERIS – The Ontario Metropolis Centre,
The Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS) and
The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) Present:
Making the Grade?
A Civil Society, Research, and Policy Dialogue on the CCR’s Migrant Worker Report Cards and the Treatment of Migrant Workers in Ontario
In 2013 the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR) released its Migrant Worker Report Cards, focused on the protection of the rights of migrant workers in the “low-skilled” streams of the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) Program in each province and nationally. Because migrant workers are particularly vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, the CCR and allies are calling for the protection of migrant workers’ rights and access to permanent residence and services.
This event will present and offer a chance to discuss the report’s evaluation of Ontario within the broader context of TFW programs in Canada and will feature a dialogue between the audience and representatives from civil society and academia.
