Act Now: Let's win Regularization!
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his 38 Cabinet Ministers will finally be discussing regularization this May. They can either make a decision immediately, or continue to delay. They can create a small and exclusionary program for just a few or ensure permanent resident status for all undocumented people. Together, let’s make sure they do the right thing and ensure status for all. Here’s how:
(1) Visit Cabinet Minister offices, talk to the constituency staff and drop off letters
(2) Call the Cabinet Ministers everyday
(3) Send emails, write letters and deliver petitions to Cabinet Ministers.
Over the next few weeks, we must push as hard as we can, get as loud as we can to make sure that Cabinet Ministers create a program to ensure permanent resident status for all undocumented people. But if they choose to delay, we won’t stop, let’s keep up the pressure over the summer and beyond to win.
(1) Visit Cabinet Minister offices, talk to the constituency staff and drop off lettersStep 1: Find the closest constituency office near you.
Step 2: Check online using Google to see when they are open. Constituency offices are usually open to the public between 10am to 4pm, Monday – Thursday, but make sure to confirm. Pick a time that you can go and invite friends to come with you if you can. Let us know when you are going so we can encourage those nearby to join you, email us at email@example.com.
Step 3: Print out these three documents:
Step 5: A few days later, call the office to ask if they passed on your message to the Minister.
Step 6: Email us and let us know what happened – firstname.lastname@example.org

Day Of Action : #UniteAgainstRacism#RefugeesWelcome#StatusForAll March18-19, 2023 Across Canada
On March 19, mark the International Day for Elimination of Racism and the return of spring to take to the streets with thousands of migrants and supporters to demand equal rights and permanent resident status for all undocumented people, migrant workers, students, families and refugees. A regularization program was promised in December 2021 but Prime Minister Trudeau is stalling, and migrant families are being deported and exploited every day. Anti-immigrant forces are trying to shut down immigration justice. They are blaming immigrants for low-wages; and creating hysteria about refugee claimants escaping the United States via Roxham Road to distract from corporate greed and profiteering. We must show the federal government that there are more of us, and we all want Status For All. We must mobilize in the thousands with hope, we must #UniteAgainstRacism, insist #RefugeesWelcome and demand #StatusForAll. We have won many victories, from access to vaccines, to stopping deportations, to winning improvements to laws. We must make sure there are no delays.
