A ground-breaking report was released on May 15, 2013 on the steps of the Manitoba legislature. The report, by the Migrant Worker Solidarity Network and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives gives a voice to Manitoba’s migrant farm workers. About 400 migrant workers, mostly Mexican men, come to Manitoba each summer under Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program to work on farms and nurseries. The workers are invisible to most Manitobans. The report is based on interviews with workers themselves, and also presents recommendations to federal and provincial governments.
