Every year, Council of Canadians chapter activists, Board members and staff gather together for regional meetings to connect, put forward ideas, learn, and discuss plans. These gatherings are vital and enable us to share campaign strategies and strengthen our overall capacity.
As always, I look forward to participating in all of the regional meetings. This year they will be taking place on:
April 17-19 in Vancouver
April 24-26 in Peterborough
May 1-3 in Halifax
May 22-24 in Winnipeg
The organizers are in the process now of consulting with chapter activists on the agendas for these meetings. We’re also working to determine which campaigners will be at which meetings to present and participate in these discussions.
After the four regional meetings this spring, chapter activists will gather again for a national meet-up, known as our chapter caucus day, during our annual conference that will take place on October 23-25 in Windsor, Ontario (just after the October 19 federal election).
Chapter activists can find out more about the upcoming regional meetings from our organizing team staff, so please do be in touch with them. And if you’re a Council of Canadians supporter, please consider joining a chapter!
