Through RWAC (Rights and Welfare Action Committee), we receive complaints, issues of migrants and immigrant Filipinos in Alberta. We provide various assistances from filling up forms, filing complaints and helping migrants in distress.
We have an education module called “Paaralang Migrante” or migrant school. It includes Know Your Rights training, History of Filipino Migration, Step-by-Step Organizing, Leadership and Collective Building. Our members also have access to UFCW’s web based skill courses.
We bring public attention to the plight of migrants and precarious workers through different avenues with the aim of getting broad public support and pro-migrant public awareness that has a vision for change.
We continue to build relationships and broad network of advocates to promote strong support for all migrant workers. Our allies include labour unions, grassroots migrant organizations, women organizations and workers organizations. We also conduct dialogue and seek audience with concerned government agencies (both in Canada and in the Philippines) to discuss migrant policies and legislations.
Through our umbrella organization, we uphold harmonious cooperation among migrant association around the world. Migrante is an active member of the International Migrants Alliance (IMA) as well as the International League of People’s Struggles (ILPS).
