Building Capacity to Support Migrant Workers in BC

AMSSA launched the project “Building Capacity to Support Migrant Workers in BC” on March 4, 2019. This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Migrant Worker Support Network BC Pilot led by Employment and Social Development Canada.

The objective of the project is to enhance the knowledge and capacity of settlement and migrant worker support organizations, unions, professional associations, volunteers, employers and all individuals supporting migrant workers in BC by providing them with tools, resources and training opportunities.

As part of this project, AMSSA organized three in person meetings in Nanaimo, Prince George and Kelowna. These three cities and smaller communities around them are major hubs for migrant workers living in British Columbia.
