Support Caregivers Repeal S. 38 of the Immigration Refugee Protection Act!


Caregivers Action Centre (CAC) is working in coalition with a broad range of groups to get a repeal of Section 38(1)(c) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), which excludes people with certain medical conditions and disabled people from Canada. Section 38(1)(c) allows for an applicant to be rejected if they or their family member “might reasonably be expected to cause excessive demand on health or social services.” For caregivers, this means that if any of their family members has a disability, the caregiver and her entire family is barred from becoming permanent residents here.

If you know a caregiver or any other migrant affected by this issue who is not already connected to the campaign, please put them in touch with the CAC at or 647-782-6633.
