How We Help
Every year, thousands of individuals from Mexico and the Caribbean come to work seasonally at Ontario’s farms, vineyards, and greenhouses.
Employed under Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program, these guests live and work here for up to eight months every year, separated from their family, friends, and home communities.
Some migrant neighbours are arriving in Canada for the first time, while others have been returning for as long as 30 years. All rely on the income earned here to support and provide for their loved ones back home.
NMWIG is comprised of community organizations, service providers, and individual community members across Niagara.
Since 2010, the group has been working to create a healthier and more welcoming environment for Niagara’s seasonal migrant neighbours.
