A Community Forum on Bill C-49: Toronto: Mon Nov 29

Many service agencies are concerned that this bill will be used to target refugees and people without status.

Council of Agencies Serving South Asians (CASSA) and Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) jointly invite you to

A Community Forum on Bill C-49.

Bill C-49 is titled Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada's Immigration System Act. Despite the title, most of the provisions in the bill punish refugees, not smugglers. If this bill is passed, the ones who will suffer are the people fleeing persecution, including children.
