Navigating Deportation:

 A Guide to Legal Rights and Campaign Strategies 

 

Welcome to a special edition of The Peak, Navigating Deportation. In your hands is a guide with resources, untold stories, tips for organizing, ways to navigate living without status and resisting a deportation order in Canada.

This issue was special to The Peak because we wanted to create something that would serve as an access point of information for those with precarious status within Canada. We also wanted to provide a safe platform for individuals who have lived through these experiences to share their stories of triumph and tribulations. These pages also include helpful tips from organizers and community members who are working in solidarity with individuals without status.

We ask that you share this issue widely with family, friends, neighbours and coworkers; it is our hope that this resource kit will reach those who need it the most.

Enjoy,

The Peak Collective
