The CLC has recognized Sherman Chan, from the Canadian Council of Refugees for his organization’s outstanding work on behalf of immigrants and refugees. CLC Secretary-Treasurer Hassan Yussuff also provided the CCR with a cheque for $10,000 during the CLC’s convention in Vancouver. The CCR’s work includes holding governments accountable and fighting for laws and policies which ensure that immigrants, refugees, migrant workers and asylum seekers are not exploited in Canada.
Chan accepted the financial donation and acknowledged the importance of the partnership with labour. He also thanked all those who have supported the CCR through advocacy and active participation in campaigns.
