Is Canada the welcoming country for migrants it likes to call itself?

Synopsis

Is Canada the welcoming country for migrants it likes to call itself? In the Shadow of Borders challenges this myth and, through personal stories of detention, denial of essential services, labour exploitation and deportation, exposes how precarious are the lives of those without status.

By connecting histories—of indigenous sovereignty, of Canada’s role in displacement, of its discriminatory policies—this documentary portrays grassroots resistance to xenophobic governmental practices and the struggle of migrants for freedom of movement.
