Join SIKLAB Ontario and the member organizations of the Magkaisa Centre in celebrating International Workers Day 2013 with a film screening of “My Folks: Building a Home in Canada” (a photovoice video project).
Guided by the advocacy work of the Magkaisa Centre, the My Folks film sets focus on portraying the Filipino Canadian community’s experiences of migration and the challenges of genuinely settling in Canada. Fitting under the theme of home building, the film follows the stories of two women who have come through the Live-in Caregiver Program in search of a better life for themselves and their families—a plight familiar to many members of the Filipino Canadian community.
Be a part of the Q&A and discussion session to find out more about the issues that affect us all as women, youth and workers in Canada, including topics regarding healthcare, education, housing needs, employment and more.
