The City of Toronto is denying Torontonians their childcare subsidies on the basis of their immigration status. This is against Toronto’s sanctuary policy, which guarantees all residents access to all city services regardless of their immigration status.

Parents have been told - with no notice - that their Toronto childcare subsidy was being cancelled because of their status. Now they are left scrambling to find an alternative in the most expensive city in the country for childcare.

BREAKING: 17 Immigration Detainees Refusing Food at Ontario Maximum Security Prison

Posted in

Two months from the date that Minister Goodale promised changes to the immigration detention system, 17 immigrants, jailed without charges and trial at the Central East Correctional Centre have begun to refuse food as of October 17. The immigration detainees are calling for an end to indefinite detention, with a 90 day limit on detentions, as an initial step to ending detentions.

One of the men on strike is Kashif Ali, who has been in immigration detention for a total of 12 years. He says, “I swear every night I sleep three or four hours, I don’t know if I will be released or put on a plane. They are making me go crazy, I can’t sleep, I am depressed, I have stomach problems. People like me, I am not fighting them, but we can’t be deported, we should be released, given ID and papers and the support to work. This is why I am going hungry.”
