Canada’s agricultural sector is facing a labour shortage – and the governmental and corporate solution is migrant workers. But for decades these seasonal worker programs have perpetuated structures of discrimination and few to no rights for labourers.

Check out the Justice for Migrant Workers site to read up on “The Issues,” volunteer your time/money/office space to their organization, or to engage with some of their great resources.

There’s a powerful “Wall of Shame” to chronicle degrading, racist and ignorant comments from politicians, governments, or local leaders in the migrant worker debate.

You can find updates on recent cases, up-to-date press releases, and links to other resources that flesh out the most popular locations for seasonal work in Canada, the legal implications of seasonal contracts, and other examples of migrant worker oppression.
