About the Migrant Worker Community Program
The MWCP is a registered charitable organisation based in Leamington, Ontario, that services all of Windsor-Essex County. Each year, approximately 20,000 migrant workers come to live and work in Essex County.
Our mission is to help build a stronger community by supporting Migrant Workers with access to educational, social, cultural, and recreational opportunities, while also helping them navigate available support services such as health and wellness, legal aid, and travel and immigration support in Spanish, English and Tagalog.
The MWCP supports community integration by bringing the Migrant Worker populations into local life and activities, to help workers transition more successfully into the local community and feel welcome. The MWCP is often one of the earliest points of contact for the Migrant Worker.
The MWCP, through various programs and outreach initiatives, offered support to approximately 5000 Migrant Workers and over 200 farms in the past year. This service is culturally safe and responsive.
