LL.D. thesis findings:

Analyzed using the Supreme Court of Canada’s “liberty/security harms” doctrine, empirical evidence shows that Canadian (im)migrant labour programs’ employer-tying policies result in (im)migrant workers facing restrictions to their physical liberty, increased risks of harm, denial of procedural fairness, barriers to the making of fundamental choices (to quit employer, occupation or place of residence), obstacles to access justice, and serious state-induced psychological stress. In fact, specific policy alternatives must be implemented to ensure the Canadian state's actions compatibility with the respect of individuals' fundamental right not to be held under servitude.
