                    Do you want to Know Your Rights?

The Philippine Migrants Society of Canada (PMSC) has recently launched its Know Your Rights! Enforce Your Rights! Workshop series. Our workshops provide information and discussion about the rights of migrant workers in Ottawa. We specifically focus on how we can enforce these rights.

Topics include:

Ontario Labour Standards, The Live-in-Caregiver Program (LCP), Immigration and more (tax, use of computer, job hunt...)

**We also offer these workshops free of charge and would be happy to visit your church or organization**
