Montreal Chapter delivering the IPCC report.
Since its inception, the Council of Canadians has built its strength and credibility with powerful grassroots activists in communities across Canada. Chapters promote local, provincial and national Council of Canadians campaigns, hold governments to account, and push for social and economic justice on a daily basis.
Joining a chapter is a great opportunity to meet with other Council of Canadians supporters who share your passion and vision for a better Canada. See if there’s a chapter near you and if not, contact us to discuss starting one!
Below are a few recent highlights – send actions and events to your regional organizer – we’d love to add your photos to our Flickr photostream too!
