Council of Canadians Hamilton Chapter at Saturday’s Stick It To Ford! Demonstration organized by OCAP outside of Doug Ford's DECO label factory and printing firm. Joined by several supporters of the Hamilton Chapter, fellow activists in Burlingon, allies from the Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability Benefits, and $15 and Fairness Hamilton.

A large part of the Council of Canadians’ strength comes from our chapters working to build the kind of Canada we want. Join a chapter and meet people who share your interests and values and find out more about how you can be involved in your community. See if there is a chapter near you and if not, contact us to discuss starting one!
