AGM (again) and migrant Dreams

We will reconvene on February 19, 2020 to attend to the business of the AGM that was thwarted by really nasty weather in January. Same agenda, pending additions or corrections.

At the close of the meeting, we will screen Migrant Dreams, a film about the experiences of temporary foreign workers in Canada. There is much to discuss in terms of the economy, both here and abroad, that leads to the existence and administration of this program, and much to be said about Transitions principles and their relation to programs of this nature.

Do be part of the discussions, at both the meeting and the film.
