My research examines low-wage labour migration, and focuses on understanding how legal regulations governing work and immigration status create barriers to legal and social inclusion, and access to justice for migrant workers. I have explored these issues most directly in the context of the low-wage streams of Canada’s Temporary Foreign Workers Program, and also in contexts of irregular migration and labour exploitation. Through my research, I aim to uncover the ways in which legal regulations shape individual decision-making and relational dynamics in and outside of the workplace for migrants with precarious status.
