As we all know, the conditions for migrants is rapidly deteriorating, with a number of policies by Minister of Deportation Jason Kenney including mandatory detention, fatal cuts to refugee health care, a moratorium on parent and grandparent sponsorships, the unilateral cancellation of 300,000 immigration applications, making it legal for migrant workers to be paid 15 percent less than the prevailing wage, and
On Monday November 26th, those affected by these policies – such as the Figueroa family who are facing deportation to El Salvador after having resided in Canada for fifteen years and Hamoudi a Palestinian refugee from Gaza – will share their experiences.
This will be followed by several break out discussions including effective responses to these changes and
strengthening alliances across movements, such as the environmental justice and migrant justice movements.
