Who we are:
The Non-Status Women’s Collective of Montreal formed in October 2015, initiated by non-status women who wanted to get together, help each other and fight side by side. Among the most precarious groups in Canada, non-status women live without any immigration status and so are particularly vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, often working the most dangerous and difficult jobs without access to health care, education or social services and living under the constant threat of detention and deportation. We are from many different origins and backgrounds, and we all have distinct stories to tell. We fight together to reject the case by case system and demand the regularization of everyone living without status in Canada.
– Implement an immediate, comprehensive regularization program for all those living undocumented; & immediately:
*Access to labour standards and other human rights, independent of immigration status;
*A real sanctuary city, meaning no collaboration between the police and the CBSA;
*Access to healthcare;
*Access to education for all children and adults.
