Canada’s labour movement needs your help to elect progressive candidates, who are committed to protecting quality public services that make our local communities stronger, to municipal councils and school boards across Canada.
Local elections matter because they impact services we use every day, from our drinking water and roads to our kids’ education and care for the elderly. Great municipal governments can make communities stronger, healthier, better places to live – and only a handful of votes can have a huge impact in municipal elections.
The Canadian Labour Congress is identifying candidates for elected office who support vibrant public services, like parks, libraries, rec centres and public transit – and who support the workers who keep these services running.
