Today is a wonderful day. For the first time, migrant worker groups from coast to coast to coast in Canada have joined together and formed a singled unified voice for migrant worker rights.
The Migrant Workers Alliance for Change is proud to be a member of the Coalition for Migrant Workers Rights - Canada
(CMWRC) and we are comprised of members from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, PEI, and Quebec. Together, CMWRC members have launched MoVE, a campaign for Mobility, Voice and Equality
for migrant workers. MoVE is calling on Trudeau to act urgently to untie migrant workers from their employers as a first step towards permanent immigration status on arrival. Migrant workers deserve real change.

Did you know that low-waged migrant workers are restricted to working for the specific employer listed on their permit? Changing employers is extremely difficult, which allows bad bosses to lower salaries and work conditions for migrant workers. As a result, wages and conditions worsen for everyone in the labour market.
That's just not fair. We have a new government in Ottawa that has promised real change. Let's call on them to make sure they do so. Let's build a fair immigration system that values people, supports families and rejects divisiveness.
The time for change is now.
