On November 22 in Toronto, caregivers came out to speak out against Immigration Minister Chris Alexander. He and the government are taking away caregivers’ right to permanent residency. The Caregivers Action Centre organized the rally.
From our friends at the Caregiver’s Action Centre:
The Federal Conservatives are quietly trying to totally change the Live-In Caregiver Program. They want to take away permanent immigration status from Live-In Caregivers.
We cannot allow this to happen.
We are calling an emergency meeting of current and former Live-In Caregivers so that we can plan our response. Join us.
If you are a current or former Live-In Caregiver, please come to this meeting:
3pm, August 23, 2014
Suite 223, 720 Spadina Avenue.
Please RSVP here. If you cannot be there on August 23rd, but want to know about future meetings, then please email us!
