Migrant Workers' Dignity Association


Before sharing our experiences
of working with Temporary Foreign Farm Workers (TFFWs) with you, we asked the workers what they
wanted us to tell you so as to best relate the conditions they endure. Every one of them advised us: tell
them about our job stories, tell them about all the things that our hearts are suffering.
By telling you some of their stories, we will make some recommendations and we hope to answer, at
least in part, the following questions:

* Who is involved in the production
of the food we eat?
* What is the real price that we are
paying for our food?
* Why are TFFWs called temporary
and "guest" when they live in Canada
for longer periods than in their
own countries?
* Why do the governments, as well
as farm employers, think that Temporary
Foreign Worker Programs
(TFWPs) are successful programs?
* What can Canadians do to stop
the new slavery and social apartheid
of TFFWs?
*Why are Canadians concerned
with eating local and organic produce
but do not care about the unethical
treatment of TFFWs?
