Today the Canadian Labour Congress joins Indigenous communities across Canada in celebrating National Aboriginal Day.
The labour movement is a powerful force for women’s equality and positive change, at the workplace and in society.
We help make the workplace safer, challenge harassment and discrimination. We have helped open doors to women working in trades and technology and we build women’s leadership and political participation. Many challenges remain, especially for women who face additional barriers because of race, disability, Aboriginal status, age, sexuality and gender identity and expression.
