Using a gender lens, this session will examine what citizenship means to immigrants in Canada and to trans-border migrants, including those migrants whose status is either precarious or non-existent. In Canada, nearly all forms of caring rely on migrant and immigrant labor. Within the context of mobility of people across transnational borders in a globalized neo-liberal economy, the session will focus on unfolding how some migrants negotiate citizenship, exert their agencies, while others get marginalized due to class, race, sexual orientation, nationality, and so on.
