Chapters This Week

Every day, Council of Canadians chapters are active in communities across the country. Council chapters are made up of volunteers who work with local community groups, organized labour and others to promote the Council’s campaigns to protect water and public health care, work for fair trade, climate justice and democracy as well as other issues of social and economic concern. Check out some of our chapters’ recent actions below and be in touch if you are interested in getting involved in a chapter near you.

"We were buoyed up by the spirit of unity and faith in our community to displace hate and ignorance with love and understanding. Speakers challenged us all to confront white supremacy, colonialism, Islamophobia, and hate in all its forms in our daily lives." Chapter supporter Daniel Neibert took the photo.
