“International Migrant’s Day is a day to reflect upon our collective successes with community allies and the road still left to travel. This forum is also another great opportunity for us to join with our brothers and sisters on the front lines from Migrante Ontario and reinforce our commitment to work together,” says Naveen Mehta, UFCW Canada director of Human Rights, Equity & Diversity. “At the end of the day, we all strive for the same result: justice and respect for immigrant and migrant workers and by combining our efforts we will get there a lot faster.”
