Migrant workers have part of the caregiving workforce in Canada for most of our history. For the past 60 years, various iterations of the migrant caregiver program have governed the rights of migrant caregivers in Canada. The current version of the migrant caregiver program was developed under the Harper government with little consultation with caregivers. It is particularly flawed and is set to expire in November 2019. Tell the immigration minister to develop a new caregiver program which addresses caregiver needs and learn more about the caregiver's campaign here
Caregivers want to stop living in fear and limbo and deserve fairness.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
