Working collaboratively to create barrier free access to culturally sensitive quality health and social services for Migrant Workers in Durham Region.
Equitable and inclusive
Unexpectedly founded in 2013, Durham Region Migrant Workers Network (DRMWN) was a group of individuals who came together in response to the need for migrant worker integration into the community. In 2014, DRMWN became official, and is an unincorporated network of organizations that care about the quality of life for migrant workers, while they are away from their family and country of origin.
