Town of Newmarket: End Racism Against Asian Massage Businesses and Workers

 

As of April 2022, the Town of Newmarket has implemented a legal regime that has illegalized and prohibited the operation of Asian massage businesses within its town limits. The PWE classification excludes low-income Asian women from accessing needed business licenses. Despite concerns being raised at every stage of by-law review, the Town of Newmarket has now ordered Asian massage businesses to shut down. We urge the Town of Newmarket to immediately cease enforcing the by-law and repeal and review the discriminatory PWE classification system
