Background Information

More than 20, 000 migrant farm workers from Thailand, Mexico, Guatemala,the Philippines, and the Caribbean arrive in Canada to work in our fields,orchards and greenhouses every year. Many workers pay thousands of dollars in fees to recruiters to be able to work in Canada, sometimes for jobs that do noteven exist. Once they arrive, many workers face dangerous working conditions, sub-standard housing and employment standards and human rights violations. As farm workers and migrants, they have little recourseto assert their human and labour rights and are constantly faced with thethtreat of deportation if they voice their concerns.

Justicia for Migrant Workers is an awardwinning volunteer-run collective that strives to promote the rights of migrant farm workers by creating spaces for workers to lead their own movement and articulate their own voices in a country that makes renders them invisible.
