MOSAIC’s Migrant Workers Program

Support for Migrant Workers and Employers

MOSAIC’s Migrant Workers Program operates within Canada and helps migrant workers in the province of British Columbia to learn about their workplace rights and how to access services. We also help employers understand their duties when hiring workers.

We redistribute funds to over 20 non-profit agencies to support workers and their employers.

We work closely with the partner agencies to build capacity through sharing resources and providing direct support for migrant workers.

Services are available in English, Spanish, Tagalog, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, French, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Ask us about support for other languages.
