Vaccines for All

March 18, 2021

We support the Migrant Rights Network’s Vaccines for All! campaign. 

The campaign draws attention to the fact that despite providing essential work that helps to sustain our communities, many migrants do not have access to health coverage and/or are afraid to access medical services as a result of the immigration status. For the safety of migrant workers, and everyone in our communities, we must ensure vaccines for all. 

We therefore join the campaign in calling on federal and provincial governments to ensure full access to the COVID-19 vaccine to all migrants regardless of immigration status. Vaccine provision must:

  • Be free of charge;
  • Not require a health card or health card number;
  • Be accessible;
  • Not collect any ID or addresses, or information about immigration status, and develop alternative mechanisms for tracking vaccine doses. Health authorities must guarantee that any personal information that is collected will not be shared with immigration enforcement or police; and
  • Not be coercive or mandatory
