Here are some campaigns we are involved in and/or support.
Support Vaccines for Seasonal Agricultural Workers
WTEP is supporting the Mexican Association of Calgary in their efforts to make Covid vaccines available and accessible to temporary migrant farm workers in Alberta.
See CBC link for details about the situation.
- Please share the CBC article via email, in your WhatsApp groups, in your Social Media and circle of influence, here’s the link:
A summary of demands is as follows:
• The prioritization of temporary agricultural workers in the vaccine roll out
• The AB government coordinate with employers to arrange workers’ transportation to a vaccination centre or to work with Alberta Health to provide mobile vaccine clinics at places of employment
• That information regarding the vaccines and where workers can be vaccinated is distributed in the language of the farmworkers
• That workers do not lose pay for the time spent getting vaccinated.
Take note that the government is saying that it is moving on this issue but we think they need to be accountable and transparent about what concrete steps they are taking to get vaccines to these workers and they need to have timelines. You might ask for these also.
Here is a list of email addresses.
- We will ask that if you have the time, please write letters to the Editor of different newspapers

Voices of the Oppressed: Police Brutality educational experience at Poppy Plaza, 1111 Memorial Drive NW
Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/309409577253908
Inclusive Canada is teaming up with friends ARC Vancouver for ‘Voices of the Oppressed: Police Brutality,’ an event aimed to bring communities together in solidarity and provide an educational experience to help people better understand the importance of defunding the police in order to refund our communities, and what a police-free future could look like if our current grassroots structures were better supported. Some of the topics you can expect to learn about include mutual aid, mental health, harm reduction, community safety, decriminalization, and Queer community support.
