The Building Capacity to Support BC’s Migrant Workers project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Migrant Worker Support Network BC Pilot led by Employment and Social Development Canada. The objective of AMSSA’s project is to enhance the knowledge and capacity of organizations and employers supporting migrant workers in BC. Our services include the following:
An Advisory Committee is recruited to develop an action plan for the project and will be consulted on an ongoing basis to advise on the various activities planned throughout the year.
Webinars are live online video presentations with subject matter experts on a topical subject which includes an opportunity for live question and answers. All webinars will be recorded and made available online.
Migration Matters Info Sheets
Special editions of Migration Matters Info Sheets summarize key topics regarding migrant workers in a two-page overview to help service providers, employers and other stakeholders navigate the rapidly changing landscape of the sector.
Migrant Worker Hub Website
Migrant Worker Hub Website will act as a centralized source of curated resources and tools to support service providers, organizations, employers and other stakeholders in their work with migrant workers.
Migrant Worker Video Series
The Migrant Worker Video Series is a series of animated short, informational videos created to help organizations and other stakeholders support migrant workers as they navigate BC and Canada’s systems. The animated videos will be available online.
E-learning Modules are online courses on topics regarding migrant workers. The modules allow individuals to learn as well as check comprehension of the material at a self-directed pace. The courses can be taken in a group setting as well. After taking each course, learners receive a Certificate of Completion.
Regional meetings will be held in Prince George, Nanaimo and Kelowna to provide those supporting migrant workers with the opportunity to share regional priorities, gaps and best practices, receive training, as well as to connect with Provincial and Federal Government representatives and others who support migrant workers.
AMSSA gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Government of Canada’s Migrant Worker Support Network Program.
