Supporting the Human Rights of Migrant Sex Workers:
Access to Justice - Legal training for services providers, front-line workers
Are you working with migrants, people without legal status, women facing gender-based violence, or sex workers or women who may sell sexual or erotic services?
Would you like to learn about the realities and challenge that migrant sex workers face when accessing supports and services?
Would you like to learn more about the laws and regulations that impact the fundamental rights of migrant sex workers and individuals from these communities, including, immigration, employment, criminal and municipal law?
Would you like to meet and exchange with other community organizations and legal clinics that serve migrant sex workers and people without legal status?
The Migrant Sex Workers Legal Training project is a partnership of The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO), Butterfly (Asian Migrant Sex Workers Support Network), St. Stephen’s Community House and the Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic.
It is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario through the Connecting Communities Program. This project is currently developing training materials for service providers and community leaders, covering immigration, employment, criminal and municipal law that impact migrant sex workers. A set of curriculum materials and resource guide will be provided for the workshop participants, to increase the knowledge of service providers in navigating the legal system.
