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.

We partnered with researchers at the University of Western Ontario and conducted the first ever Canadian survey on domestic violence in the workplace. We did this because there is almost no data on this issue in Canada.This video talks about the experience and highlights the findings.
