No 4 and 4 Campaign

Help stop one of the largest deportations in Canadian history!

CUPE members are encouraged to support the many migrant workers who are facing deportation because of a new unjust law popularly referred to as the 4 & 4 law”.

Thousands of low-waged temporary foreign workers who have worked in Canada for more than four years, including migrants employed under the Live-In Caregiver Program, will be forced to leave. Tens of thousands of migrants will lose their jobs.

Sign the petition on Change.org. 

The demands of the campaign are:

  • An end to the 4 & 4 rule so migrant workers can continue to work here
  • Grant migrant workers in Canada permanent residency
  • Ensure migrant worker access to all social benefits and entitlements 
  • Enact legislation to grant permanent residency for all migrants upon arrival

CUPE National endorses “No 4 and 4 Campaign”. The campaign was launched by the Migrant Alliance for Changes, a coalition of dozens of migrant justice groups across Canada.
