In Your Community

Since its inception, the Council of Canadians has built its strength and credibility with powerful grassroots activists in communities across Canada. Chapters are truly our greatest asset. Members of the Council of Canadians who organize into chapters work tirelessly, with abounding energy and achieve success at the community, provincial and national level – building the kind of Canada WE want!

Our volunteer Chapter activists work with local community groups, organized labour, and our members and staff to promote progressive policies on fair trade, clean water, energy security, public health care and others issues of social and economic concern to Canadians. We defend public services and work to secure the right to water both in Canada and internationally.

To find out more about an active chapter in your community check the chapter contacts page and contact the chapter directly.

Chapter actions

Representatives from Council of Canadians chapters gather each year in the BC/Yukon, Prairies, ON/QC and Atlantic regions in addition to annually at the Council of Canadians Annual General Meeting.
