Celebrating Caregivers on Mother's Day
Sunday May 13, 2018
We, the migrant caregivers who come to take care of your children and elders, deserve to be cared for. We deserve to come to Canada with our families and permanent resident status. We do vital work that allows this society to function.
This Mother's Day, we are inviting all current and former live-in and live-out caregivers, and those who want to show us appreciation, to a celebration at Yonge-Dundas Square.
This event is co-hosted by Caregivers Action Centre (CAC) and Caregiver Connections Education and Support Organization (CCESO) and is part of a National Day of Action organized by CAC, CCESO, the Association for the Rights of Household Workers (Montreal), Filipino Canadian Advocacy Network, Filipino Workers Network of BC, GABRIELA-Ontario, Migrante Alberta, Migrante BC, Migrante Canada, Migrante Ontario, Migrant Workers Centre (Vancouver), Vancouver Committee for Domestic Workers' and Caregivers' Rights (CDWCR), and Victoria Filipino Canadian Association.
Caregiver Connections, Education and Support Organization (CCESO) offers free programs, events, and activities that support caregivers, newcomers, and migrant workers.
