Chapters This Week


The London Chapter held a successful anti-PEGIDA/yellow vests "Refugees Welcome Rally" at London City Hall on January 12.

Council of Canadians chapters activists have been taking part in ongoing solidarity actions with Wet'suwet'en, joining the call “that the provincial and federal government uphold their responsibilities to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and ‘Anuc niwh’it’en (Wet’suwet’en law).” The Council has made a donation to the Unist'ot'en camp legal fund as well as a donation to help cover the travel costs of youth to join the camp. We continue to stand in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en. Look for the next solidarity action and join a chapter near you!

Below are a few recent highlights – send your actions and events to your regional organizers – we’d love to add your photos to our Flickr photostream too!
