Status for All!
Migrant Rights Network Organizes Actions to Defend Rights of All
Join the Migrant Rights Network for actions on July 17 in Montreal, Edmonton, Toronto, and St Catharines or by putting up posters in your community. A Zoom meeting is taking place the following Tuesday, July 19.
The actions and meeting are part of a summer petition and organizing campaign to mobilize public support for permanent resident status for migrants and refugees living and working in Canada without status.
There are an estimated 1.7 million such migrants and refugees who live in a state of constant stress, insecurity and instability. The campaign was launched in the wake of a motion passed by the Canadian parliament on May 11 — M-44 Permanent residence for temporary foreign workers — aimed at expanding the pathway to permanent residency for migrants living in Canada. Following on this motion this summer the Canadian government is making decisions that will impact the lives of 1.7 million people.
Now is the time to step up the work to demand the Trudeau Liberals recognize the rights of all migrants and refugees in Canada for permanent status, rights and dignity.
