At this point it should be noted that health insurance programs are in place for all SAWP workers, but Jenna Hennebry shows that many of those workers are afraid of telling their boss of health problems, “for fear of repatriation” (Making vulnerability visible). All of these realities have led to the low health standers that many Canadian temporary workers experience. Although only a few of the major reasons for health issues among SAWP workers in Canada have been discussed here, it should be clear that the government needs to address these issues through legislation and changes to the way SAWP operates.

The Metis had had enough with the government and decided to bring back Louis Riel from Montana.

Cesar Chavez once stated that “students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves - and be free.” Standing up has become a common stand, in which ordinary people and students speak on their concerns, even if their voices shake. Injustice often occurs when the people believe that the regulations are set in stone, but there have been leaders that have taken it upon themselves to lead the community into a fair and just environment. Activists and political figures have constantly changed, influenced, and reshaped the way people live their lives.

Sociologist David Williams states that all policies impact health policy. This is exemplified across a wide rage of policies in the US. These policies are flawed and corrupt, polarizing the nation racially and by socioeconomic status (SES) and resulting in great disparities in health. Although policy and law has evolved, presenting a more progressive and “color-blind” front, it remains an obstacle to ending disparities in health. Many of these policies, such as housing, environmental, and labor, are interconnected and have many aspects to them that affect health policy.
Introduction Group Work & Immigrants It could be argued that group work can have a direct positive impact on helping immigrants acclimate to life in Canada.

When newcomers arrive to Canada they are faced with a multitude of challenging issues that they have to deal with in order to find a better life for themselves and for their families.
