About Us

Le centre des travailleurs et travailleuses immigrants est un organisme de justice sociale qui offre des ressources et un support aux immigrants, réfugies et sans statut; Principalement en lien avec le travail mais également en lien avec d'autres problèmes tel que les services de santé ou le profilage racial. Le centre a également des campagnes politiques qui s'attaquent aux causes des différents problèmes auxquels les immigrants doivent faire face.

Founded in 2000, the Immigrant WOrkers Center (IWC) in Montreal is an example of the COmmunity labour apporach being put into action in Canada. THe Center provides a safe meeting place for workers to discuss their working situation. The IWC's projects have grown beyond immigrants' labour issues to address other situations affecting the immigrant community in Cote-des-Neiges and Montreal at large, from deportations to police brutality and racial profiling.

What we Do? -CaseWork and Advocacy: The IWC Provides casework around labour and immigration issues on an individual basis, either by appointment or drop-in during the Center's office hours.

-Campaigns: The IWC is actively engaged in campaigns for collective justice and social change for immigrant workers.

-Workshops: THe IWC animates a series of workshops about immigration and work issues fro community groups. The content of the workshop is flexible and can be tailored to the needs of specific groups, both in terms of content and language.
