Take action this weekend to fix EI and win status for all

December 15, 2022

Thanks to your organizing, we've put Employment Insurance back on the Federal government’s agenda. It's time to make sure EI actually works for workers.

there's no guarantee the government will implement the changes that workers need. And the corporate pushback has already started. If we want to make sure Trudeau gets it right, we need to keep the pressure on.

Here are four ways to take action to #FixEI

1. Join an in-person action on Monday, December 19 in the following cities. Click here to RSVP and for more information.

  • Ontario: Brampton, Toronto, and Windsor
  • Newfoundland & Labrador: St. John’s
  • Prince Edward Island: Charlottetown

2. Spread the word online

  • Print and post a solidarity selifie with our sign
  • Download and share the EI Holiday Wish List
  • Remember to tag @JustinTrudeau, @CQualtro and @cafreeland and with hashtags #FixEI, #Justice4Workers, #CdnPoli.

3. Email or call your local Member of Parliament

4. Mail an EI Holiday Card  to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (no postage required)

International Migrant’s Day Weekend

This weekend is an important weekend in the fight for #StatusForAll. Not only is Sunday, December 18 International Migrants Day, it is also the one-year anniversary of Prime Minister Trudeau promising to provide permanent immigration status for undocumented migrants in Canada. 

But despite Trudeau's promise for legal protections in the near future, migrants are still being deported across Canada. That's why we need you help this weekend to:

1. Send an email: Nearly 22,000 people have sent messages to Cabinet Ministers. Please keep signing and sharing the Migrant Rights Network's email tool at www.StatusForAll.ca

2. Poster up a Cabinet Minister's community office. Download posters here.

3. Leave a voice message for Prime Minister Trudeau and Cabinet Ministers. Here's a list of phone numbers and talking points. 

4. Send an organizational letter: If you are part of a organization, use this template to send a letter to all Cabinet Ministers. 

5. Join an action in your community:
