Chinese Workers’ Rights Ambassador Project (2015 – Ongoing)

This project aims to extend the work of CCNCTO’s Chinese Workers’ Rights: Train the Trainer project (2012 – 2013) by supporting a group of volunteers to promote workers’ rights in the Chinese community in Toronto.

In partnership with the Workers Action Centre and the Metro Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic, CCNCTO hosted a training session on January 28, 2016, for 16 participants recruited from the previous Chinese Worker’s Rights project (2011­-2012) and current volunteers. They were trained on ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) updates, current workers issues and about the Clinic’s Chinese Restaurant Workers Studies project. Participants will assist the Clinic’s project with outreach and 2 of the participants will be hired interviewers.
