Cooper Institute: Joint Letter in Support of Protesting Workers

Dear Friends,

Today we are reaching out to representatives of Island organizations to ask if you will join us and sign a letter in support of the migrant workers in Prince Edward Island who are facing a crisis because of recent changes to provincial immigration policy. The changes have left them without access to permanent residency. Many will be forced to become undocumented or leave Canada after having spent years here. The workers have been protesting for over a month now. They have gained public support, but to date the Government of PEI has refused to consider their requests.
We are asking Prince Edward Island organizations to sign this letter, addressed to Premier Dennis King and Jenn Redmond, Minister of Workforce, Advanced Learning and Population. We will release the letter to the media with the names of all who signed and the groups they represent (email addresses will not be made public). It will also be shared on social media.
Please sign the letter by following this link: https://forms.gle/M8CSe7Uj4iGDB2NAA
If you have any questions, please contact reply to ann@cooperinstitute.ca.
