- Date and time
On June 14th, we will hold a massive digital and social media gathering of migrants, poor and working class people, and allies. The global COVID-19 pandemic has proven that migrants are essential to our communities, but are exploited and excluded. Together, migrants from across Canada will raise our voice for healthcare, decent work, family unity and equal rights for all. We demand full immigration status.
Canadian immigration policy divides us into two categories: those that arrive with permanent immigration status, and those that don’t. Those who don’t are largely racialized and low-waged. We are workers, students, refugees and families. The immigration system is built to keep most of us temporary, even though our homes, families, communities, and livelihoods are here. This forces hundreds of thousands to become undocumented. Without full immigration status, we are denied healthcare, decent work, and support in times of crisis. We are separated from our families. Full Immigration Status for All is a call for equal rights for all of us.
