Report says Canada's migrant workers need more attention

According to a recent report, migrant workers may be overlooked in Canada. The report says they are forced to live like second-class citizens as they do very difficult work in harsh conditions. There are tens of thousands of these workers taking on jobs every year.

Laws that protect employee rights in Canada

As astounding as it sounds today, it was once illegal to be in a union in Canada. You could be arrested and charged as a criminal.

The two main types of errors that can cause this are errors of law and errors of fact.
