Thank you to all participants

for making possible the first Migrant Rights Film Festival

Migrant Rights Film Festival

December 10th-18th | Online Screening

The Project: In these times of Covid19 global pandemic, migrants are the most affected. Canada has been recruiting migrant workers for over 120 years. Migrant workers were integral to the development of Canada. But also, Covid 19 exposed our dependency to migrant and immigrant labour. In March when seasonal agricultural workers were not allowed to come to Canada, Farmers and farm owners started to panic, aside from the farming, migrants pack fruits and vegetables, they work in meat plants and of course, grocery stores and restaurants. Covid has shown how Canada food security is dependent on migrant labour.

Between December 10 (International Human Rights Day) and December 18 (International Migrants Day), we will be having the Migrants Rights Film Festival. The Festival is a collaborative project of Migrante and AMexCal (Association of Mexicans in Calgary). The project is to highlight the stories of Migrants in Canada and honor the workers that provide food and services in our country.
