Our blog ECHOES has published a new original contribution by Cayla Hari and Professor Temilola Salami (Sam Houston State University) on "Considerations for Working with Foreign-Born Human Trafficking Victims."
Statement from the Migrant Rights Network:
"Yesterday we released data from Immigration Canada that has caused us grave concern. Until 2019, acceptance rates for Humanitarian and Compassionate applications in Canada averaged 64%, but in 2020 that number decreased to 42%, and in the first quarter of 2021, fell even further to 30%. Humanitarian and Compassionate rejections have doubled in Canada between 2019 and the first quarter of this year.
That means tens of thousands of undocumented migrants have been unfairly shut out.
This is part of why starting on July 18th with a massive rally in Montreal, migrants from across the country are going to Ottawa on July 25th."
Migrants from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec spoke out. And the media is paying attention: their voices were heard on CTV, Toronto Star, Montreal Gazette, Radio-Canada, Journal Métro, La Presse, La Devoir and more.
