Migrant workers are a vital part of Canada. For decades, they have kept Canada’s economy moving by performing essential work. Yet, they are treated as disposable. In this eight-part podcast documentary, we hear from migrant workers, in their own words, about the conditions they face in Canada.

Migrant workers, especially those funneled through the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, are denied the basic freedoms that Canadians have and value. They are excluded from freely changing employers or reuniting with their families.

In our documentary, migrant workers, policy experts, and service providers share insights and experiences on what’s wrong with Canada’s immigration system, and what we can do to fix it.
