Harvesting Freedom: 50 years of farm-worker resistance
This petition had 2,220 supporters
2016 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Seasonal Agricultural Workers program, a guest worker program that has brought thousands of Caribbean and Mexican migrant farm workers to toil in fields across Canada.
Migrant workers under this program are tied to their employer, have no access to residency status and must return home after their contract despite how many years they worked in Canada.
This year, migrant workers and allies are organizing to demand that the Canadian government provide residency status for all migrant workers. We the undersigned echo and endorse this demand.
Status for all migrant workers.
