The Council of Canadians brings people together through collective action and grassroots organizing to challenge corporate power and advocate for people, the planet and our democracy.
We advocate for a society built on democracy, justice and care for each other. We believe we can learn from the perspectives and struggles of others as we work together for a more just world.
The Council of Canadians believes we all do better when:
- We expand and improve our public services and social programs.
- We ensure access to clean water is a human right and stop water privatization.
- Our governments work for people and not for corporations or the wealthiest 1%.
- Everyone lives with dignity and respect, and systems of oppression such as racism and colonization are dismantled.
We do this by:
Bringing people together to take collective action and build grassroots community power as we work for a just recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. With our members, supporters and chapter activists, we learn, organize and act together as we fight for clean water, fair trade, strengthened public health care, climate justice and democracy.
