Meet your MP
The Federal Government is reviewing migrant worker programs right now! There is a small and historic window of opportunity for us between May 11th and June 15th to win real change for migrant workers and for that we need you. MPs will be in their offices May 21 to May 28. Find your MP here.
Even if you have never done it before, meeting your Member of Parliament (MP) is easy. We will send you a template email and phone scripts that you can use, documents you can give them when you meet them, and will call you to help you plan.

Join #StatusNow events - May 28 - June 6
For decades migrant workers in Canada have been denied the most basic freedoms. The freedom to change their job, the freedom to visit with their family, the freedom to stay with their loved ones. Now, the Federal Government is carrying a historic review of the program and we need to ensure that migrant workers get mobility, voice and equality.
Together, we will call for:
- Mobility: Migrant workers should not be forced to work for a single employer
- Voice: Migrant workers should get a say. It’s time to undo the harm done by the previous government.
- Equality: Let’s build a robust permanent immigration system where migrant workers gets equal treatment
