Coming Together to Address Issues with the Old and New Pathways
March 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+7FREE
The Migrant Mothers Project is a participatory action research project at the University of Toronto that works with migrant women and service providers to examine how immigration policies contribute to gendered inequality. The project aims to challenge the structural violence of immigration through research, education, and advocacy.
The Migrant Mothers Project is organizing a FREE community event, hosted by Action Dignity, to share findings from our Caregivers’ Journeys study, which examines the impact of changes to the Live-in-Caregiver program in 2014 and the creation of the “new” Caregiver Program. Through interviews with 33 caregivers living in Toronto and Calgary, we explored work conditions for migrant caregivers and the impact of long processing delays on caregivers who have applied for permanent residence and await to be reunified with their families.
A panel of community workers and caregivers from Toronto and Calgary will also discuss current issues facing caregivers in anticipation of a new Caregiver Program that is currently being developed by IRCC. Through this event we aim to inspire action and create a space for meaningful dialogue.
