CLC Changing the CanvasThis program features an interview with Karl Flecker, Anti Racism and  Human Rights Director of the Canadian Labour Congress. Karl is the co-ordinator of the Changing the Canvas project of the Canadian Labour Congress. In this program, Karl speaks about the Changing the Canvas project and the situation of immigrant workers in Canada. Changing the Canvas gathers contemporary stories of struggle and strategies for change to better integrate immigrants into the Canadian labour force with equity and dignity.

Changing the Canvas presents stories and voices from community groups, unions, faith groups, workers, employers and individuals. Making the links radio has been a proud participant in the Changing the Canvas project, broadcasting some of these stories.

In this interview Karl also talks about the need for effective compliance, enforcement, and monitoring mechanisms to protect the rights of migrant workers. He speaks of how people are making a difference with the union movement connecting to the immigrant community and vice versa as people fight together for common social and economic rights.
