Migrant Action Centre

How to Get Involved

We organize and educate migrants and supporters, and empower migrants to speak up and address their needs. We are a member run movement, and take our direction from migrant members while taking advise from supporters where needed. Our memberships are free and open to migrants, supporters, and groups/organizations that share our values and wish to join us in this call. The Migrant Action Centre also joins organizations across the country in calling for an end to exploitation and precarity that migrants face, and full and permanent immigration status for all, irrespective of status or the lack thereof. At the Migrant Action Centre, we also maintain a list of equitable resources that are open and accessible to ALL migrants – irrespective of status or the lack thereof. We can help connect you with resources. Additionally, we want migrants to know you’re not alone! We are all in this together, and we stand in solidarity with each other. A problem for one migrant is a problem for all migrants and allies. Fill in our get support form or connect with us via WhatsApp/email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We do, however, have an upper limit, i.e., volunteers have to agree to not dedicate more than 20 hours a week in unpaid labour to the Migrant Action Centre.
