25 000 migrant workers are brought into Canada every year under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (SAWP), a federal program established in 1966. 66% of these workers are in Ontario, 13% in Quebec and 13% in British Columbia.

In the Niagara region, there are about 6000 migrant workers originating from Jamaica and Mexico. We spoke with Jackie Barrett-Greene who is the Newcomer Support Coordinator at AIDS Niagara and has been working with migrant workers in the Niagara region. We spoke about the barriers that migrant workers face, including access to health care services, transportation, language barriers, long work hours and work place safety.

If you would like to contact Jackie, you can find her at AIDS Niagara.
