Migrant farmworkers do some of the most dangerous work in Ontario yet they are heavily precluded from obtaining their rights to workers’ compensation. With limited exceptions, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) “disposes” of injured migrant workers to a life of poverty and ill health even though they were injured as a result of their labour in Ontario. Join us for this great event as we hear from injured migrant workers who have taken a stand to say no one is disposable!

This event is part of the “Better Healthcare” Campaign and is organized by Injured Workers Action for Justice and endorsed by IAVGO Community Legal Clinic and Justicia for Migrant Workers.
