  • 'Teresa', a single mother from Mexico came to Canada for work and have a better life & support her family. She came through the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SAWP) and started work on the farm. She was sexually assaulted by her boss and he offered her money to not complain. Workers like 'Teresa' are scared to come forward when they are mistreated because they are not citizens and their bosses control their permits. Migrant workers continue to suffer in silence because they cannot afford to lose their work opportunity.
