The Migrant Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC) is a coalition of national migrant worker groups, grassroots organizations, unions, faith groups, activists and researchers that have come together to fight for justice and dignity for migrant workers.
Canada’s federal and provincial governments have failed to adequately address the gaps in immigration and labour policy that systematically discriminate and exploit migrant workers in Canada.
MWAC exists to challenge this failure by supporting migrant workers, and migrant worker led organizations; developing innovative policy solutions; training service providers and coordinating federal and provincial campaigns.
