Program Title: Power to the PINAYs
Description: An organizer with the all-Filipina and all-volunteer run, Montreal-based organization PINAY, speaks about their work to empower Filipinas residing in Quebec, and in particular Filipina/os working as live-in caregivers. Not unlike some of her fellow PINAY organizers, this women had worked as a live-in caregiver for almost six years and is currently living in Montreal. In this interview we take a look at how Canada's Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP), one of Canada’s four temporary foreign worker programs, is in a period of great change, how the current status of the LCP pertains to people working as live-in caregivers in Quebec, and several campaigns that PINAY is working on.
