Jhoey Dulaca

Organizer, Migrant Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC)

Joelyn “Jhoey” Dulaca is an organizer with Migrant Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC). She has worked as a care provider for children and seniors for almost 20 years. She came to Canada in the summer of 2016 as an in-home childcare worker and has been organizing with MWAC since the beginning of 2017 advocating for better rights and permanent immigration status for all migrant care workers.

Jhoey is currently coordinating a campaign with other care worker groups under the Migrant Rights Network calling for the federal government to create an interim program for permanent residency for care workers. She believes that care workers face too many barriers to live and work in Canada. This includes unfair education and language requirements that make the program too inaccessible for too many caregivers.
