Abstract

This Canada-wide study focuses on access to settlement and support services for migrant workers in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (including Caregivers) and the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program. The research relies on information supplied by front-line workers at settlement agencies, community organizations and grassroots groups across the country.

The objectives of the project are as follows:

Ascertain the roles of settlement agencies and other NGOs in delivering settlement and other community services to migrant workers
Gather data on how migrant workers are or aren’t being served across Canada, including best practices and gaps
Highlight the perspectives and expertise of those on the front lines of settlement work across Canada
Gather information on the settlement sector’s perspectives regarding service provision for migrant workers, filling in gaps with information from other organizations who provide services to TFWs
Develop recommendations based on the gaps identified in survey responses.
This project was conducted jointly by: Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR), Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC (AMSSA), Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies (AAISA), and Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI).
