The Canadian Labour Congress / Congrès du travail du Canada represents the interests of more than three million affiliated workers in every imaginable occupation from coast to coast to coast.
The CLC is the umbrella organization for dozens of affiliated Canadian and international unions, as well as provincial federations of labour and regional labour councils.
We advocate on behalf of all working people in many different ways – from organizing campaigns and rallies to lobbying federal politicians in Parliament to speaking out in the media and to business on key issues to representing Canada’s labour movement internationally to developing partnerships with the community and other supportive groups.
Our goals are simple – what we wish for ourselves we desire for all.
That includes decent wages, healthy and safe workplaces, fair labour laws, equality rights, dignity in retirement, a sustainable environment and respect for basic human rights – here in Canada and around the world.
We believe that unions are a positive force for democratic social change – and that by working together we can improve Canada for everyone.
