In 2003, PINAY launched the campaign to include domestic workers in the Labour Standards, which included entitlement to minimum wage and overtime pay after the 8 hour work day. Members of PINAY travelled to speak at the National Assembly of Quebec, drawing upon their own experiences to discuss the position of domestic workers, whom remained an exception to the minimum labour standards. Winning this campaign helped many caregivers get paid for their overtime hours of work, and saw a need within PINAY to have a means to provide legal information to members. PINAY applied for accreditation as a community organization at the McGill Faculty of Law and later on in 2006 as a partner organization with McGill University’s Pro bono Students Canada (PBSC) program in order to establish a legal information clinic. The legal information clinic remains one of the primary means of teaching caregivers about their rights and a place for study on the experiences of domestic workers in Quebec.
PINAY also collaborated with professors at the McGill University School of Social Work, producing a report in 2008 on the health of domestic workers. The publication led to the launching of a new campaign, jointly supported by the Immigrant Workers Center and Project Genesis that is focused on including domestic workers in provincial health and occupational safety regulations. To date, this campaign is ongoing, as domestic workers remain excluded from CSST coverage in Quebec.
