Filipinos in Neepawa:
Immigration Experiences in a Prairie Town

Workers in meat-packing plants contribute to Canada's food security and economy.

It can be challenging and sometimes dangerous work, especially now with the health risks associated with COVID-19.

In this video, meet immigrants from the Philippines who moved to Neepawa, Manitoba, to work in the local meat-processing facility.
