JOINT SUBMISSION ON NEWMARKET’S PROPOSED BODY RUB PARLOUR BYLAW AMENDMENT

Butterfly (Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network) and the HIV Legal Network are providing feedback with respect to the most recent proposed amendments to Newmarket’s body rub parlour bylaw.

We urge the Newmarket Town Council to prioritize inclusion and respect as Newmarket community values — rather than promoting systemic racism and hateful perceptions of sex work. The proposed bylaw amendments will perpetuate the latter, and we urge the Town Council to reject this proposal and commit to further consultation with migrant massage workers and Asian businesses before amending the current bylaws.
