Government officials are making decisions that could give equal rights to 1.7 million migrants over the next few years. Amazing organizing by farmworkers, care workers, international students, undocumented people, frontline essential migrant workers and our allies have brought about this historic opportunity: Our organizing right now could win permanent residency (PR) for all low-waged migrants and undocumented people! Your help is needed to make sure Parliament opens the door to PR for all migrants in Canada, not just a select few.

The Workers’ Action Centre is a member of the Migrant Rights Network that is spearheading our regularization campaign. Many of our WAC members are migrant and undocumented workers who have risked their health at essential jobs and been denied equal access to healthcare and income support. That’s why it’s exciting to be part of the fight for regularization – for the chance to make sure no one gets left behind.
Pushback will be fierce from those who profit when migrants are denied equal rights. Bad bosses, landlords, private healthcare businesses, colleges and universities want to keep charging migrants more or paying migrants less to line their own pockets. Anti-immigrant racist groups will speak against the equality we urgently need. It’s crucial that we stay united and committed to sharing the stories and demands of migrants!
Be sure to follow the Migrant Rights Network and share our demands with your network on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Share your own messages of support for #StatusForAll and pictures of your outreach activities – don’t forget to tag your Member of Parliament and the Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau.
We have the collective power to shape our future. Now’s the time to speak out, loud and clear, for PR for all migrants who are essential to our communities.
