Collective Advocacy for Rights and Education (C.A.R.E.) for Migrant Workers

Supporting migrant workers in the South Fraser region and beyond

Through DIVERSEcity’s C.A.R.E. for Migrant Workers program, we collaborate with local community partner organizations in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Delta, Langley, Richmond, Surrey, White Rock and other regions of BC to support, empower and foster a sense of community among migrant workers.

How we help migrant workers

  • Provide one-on-one case management (i.e., applying for government and  health benefits, and job search and training support)
  • Offer mental health support and counselling
  • Inform them about their rights and how to exercise them
  • Provide emergency supports due to employer mistreatment or job loss
  • Welcome them through social, cultural and recreational activities

Drop-in individual counselling sessions

Mental health is essential for our overall wellbeing and quality of life, but you may have limited access to counselling services. DIVERSEcity now offers free, 50-minute drop-in clinical counselling sessions to help you build emotional wellness. No registration is required.

Drop in on Sundays, 9 am – 3 pm until March 31, 2024
