1pm: Rally at Immigration & Refugee Board, 74 Victoria Street. March to City Hall
1:30pm: Food, music, celebrations and speeches at City Hall.
It has been a year since we launched our call for full and permanent immigration status for all, and we have pushed the federal government to create immigration pathways that have resulted in status for some. But the vast majority of working class, racialized and particularly undocumented people are shut out of permanent resident status. As a result, we are without income support, workplace rights and even access to healthcare in a pandemic. We live under threat of deportation.
Earlier in May, the federal government created a path for 90,000 people to apply for permanent resident status. Prime Minister Trudeau’s government now says that they have done enough. Migrants and allies must take swift action across the country to call for Status for All. The door has been opened a crack, we must push to make space for all of us.
