With the new Free-Trade agreement between Canada-US-Mexico (CUSMA), a Canada-Mexico Facility Specific Rapid Response Labour Mechanism to address denial of fundamental labour rights in Mexico now exists. Claims under this new mechanism can be submitted by Canadian unions and individual Canadians or permanent residents.  

There are no Claims submitted in Canada under this mechanism yet.  The ILRC seeks to establish a committee of interested members who would work to support an effective implementation of this new mechanism, primarily supporting Mexican trade unions and Canadian Submitters. 

If anyone is interested in joining this ILRC sub-committee, please send an email to mcstamant@mmgc.quebec as soon as possible. We will schedule a meeting shortly to discuss the next steps.
