Mutual Aid for Three Undocumented Migrants with COVID-19

Mutual Aid for Three Undocumented Migrants with COVID-19

Mamadou, S. and Omar are all undocumented migrants who are active in the struggle for Status for All. Because they are undocumented, they have no valid SIN, no sick leave, no emergency benefits, no job protection. So, when they each contracted COVID-19 earlier this month, these three migrant workers were simply sent home, with no pay and no access to any government aid and no job to return to. They need our support!

Take The Pledge: Let’s Support Our Undocumented Neighbours

  SIGN UP TO MAKE YOUR PLEDGE TODAY For many of us this crisis began well before COVID-19 arrived. For years, hundreds of thousands of people have been living across this country without status, in conditions of shocking precarity and desperation. They are denied access to safe and stable work, reliable healthcare, childcare, secure housing, and most of the other systems of support afforded to citizens. The pandemic has only sharpened these inequalities and made them harder to ignore. We have listened to politicians talk about community and belonging, telling us that we’re all in this together, even as...

Our undocumented neighbours need our support – right now!

  Thousands of Montrealers have no regular immigration status. Officially, they don’t exist. In reality, they are our neighbours, friends, family, people we encounter in the streets; the guy cleaning the office at night, the teenager who put the carrots into the bag you get at the grocery store and her mom who cleans your hotel room, the older man with a cane collecting cans. We’re now well into the second wave of the pandemic and winter is on its way. Every winter, much of the work available to our undocumented neighbours disappears. In the context of the pandemic,...

Press Release | Montreal Police Initiative Fails to Protect Undocumented Community Members, Provokes New Calls for Montreal to Support Migrants

Press Release Montreal Police Initiative Fails to Protect Undocumented Community Members, Provokes New Calls for Montreal to Support Migrants 9 October 2020, Montreal — Ostensibly aimed at reducing racial profiling and making police services more accessible to those without status, a new SPVM initiative to centralize communication with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) will do little to protect undocumented migrants. As undocumented migrants mobilize across the country in the context of the COVID pandemic to demand a comprehensive regularization programme, this gesture highlights the failure of the City of Montreal to support their struggle in any meaningful way....
