WORKSCAPE

How far are you willing to go to get a decent job?

Would you move to another country? Leave your family behind?  Go work in unknown conditions? WORKSCAPE focuses on migrant workers in Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SAWP). The suffix “-scape” can mean a view, picture or scene.  In WORKSCAPE, visitors will learn about decent work by exploring the invisible workforce behind one of Canada’s largest temporary worker programs.

Migrant workers are an important part of UN Sustainable Development Goal #8, Decent Work and Economic Growth, which highlights the need to provide a secure and safe work environment, especially for migrant workers
